How To Make A Bird

How To Make A Bird is a moving and visually stunning story that celebrates the transformative power of the creative process from inception through recognition to celebration and releasing into the world.
We shadow the protagonist as she contemplates the blueprint of an idea, collects the things that inspire from the natural world to shape a bird. And breathes life into it before letting it fly free. It shows how small things, combined with a little imagination and a steady heart, can transform into works of magic.

Written by Meg McKinley, illustrated by Matt Ottley and read by Kate Miller Heidke
