New Birdie is an opportunity to reflect on prejudices that we sometimes have about a person who is different. In a simple, accessible way, this book
addresses concepts like difference, the other, migration and prejudice, plus
equality, inclusion, and friendship, opening a window to the dialogue we need to have to look at ourselves and reflect on empathy and valuing difference.
Children's book, hardcover, 16 x 16 cm., matte Ivory interior, 16 pages, 4/4, hot melt.
My name is round birdie
and I live with my family in a beatiful neighborhood.
New neighbors moved into house number 3 on my street
and they are very different from all the people in my family.
They dress, eat, and even speak differently.
They seem so strange that I was a little bit scared.
