Thank you so much Zowie Norris for providing me with a copy of Barb the Bird of Hope. Please take a moment to appreciate the adorable cover of this book. The author has designed/illustrated the book all by herself. This is such a cute story with a powerful message. It’s a story of a beautiful and colourful bird named Barb; who once used to be a pet of Mr. Davis and had always dreamed of the world outside her cage. Finally, when Mr. Davis lets her go, she quickly makes new bird and human friends. Everyone adores her because she’s pretty and radiates positivity. Her human friends visit her daily and her life is wonderful, until one day, suddenly all humans disappear. The author has done an amazing job at explaining the sudden pandemic situation. During the pandemic, a thunderstorm hits Barb’s home and she flies away due to hopelessness, but when she stops to rest for a while on the window of the hospital, she sees that humans are full of hope and fighting the pandemic bravely. The scenes at the hospital give her courage and confidence and she finally returns to her home in hope of better days to come again. This story gives a great message of staying strong during tough times. It’s important to stay hopeful and fight the challenges with bravery. The story has a great moral and teaches all of us a prime lesson to never lose hope, no matter what the circumstances. Life is full of ups and downs; after every thunderstorm comes a bright shiny sunny day, similarly after every hardship comes ease. This is a quick, intelligent and interesting read. The author has done a very pronounced job with the details and the scenes along with such eye catching illustrations. Children, as well as adults, should read it and I highly recommend this book.
