Birds of a Feather: A Virtual Event with Sita Singh and Stephanie Fizer Coleman
Books & Books, Miami Book Fair and Flamingo Gardens present…
Morning with Sita Singh
In conversation with Stephanie Fizer Coleman
Saturday, March 6, 11 AM EST
LIVE via Crowdcast
All copies of BIRDS OF A FEATHER purchased from Books & Books will include a bookmark, sticker and peacock ring while supplies last.
Differences are gorgeously illustrated in a heartwarming picture book about a colorless peacock who learns to love himself in a jungle full of color.
Mo has always felt a little different. While all the other peacocks grew bright, bold, beautiful feathers in rich greens and vibrant blues, Mo’s feathers grew in a snowy white. And even though Mo’s friends try to include him in their playtime, Mo doesn’t like to be reminded that he’s different from his friends. But when a storm threatens to ruin the group’s annual celebration, Mo must learn to stand tall, strut his stuff, and shake his brilliantly glowing tail feathers–in a way only he can–to help his friends and set things right.
From debut author Sita Singh, and brought to life by Stephanie Fizer Coleman, comes a story about finding strength in the things that make us different, and beauty in all its forms.
