Five Feathers is a delightfully illustrated book about a selfless little bird who generously gives away his five magical tail feathers to help those in need: a frigid bunny, a frightened doe, an injured beaver, a saddened little girl, and an alarmed mother possum, and in the end he himself receives a marvelous transformation. It is a tale of open hearted generosity. In a time when we are being asked to step up ever more frequently to help those in need, it is a good lesson for children and adults alike. Parents, grandparents, and anyone who loves children will want to give this as a gift, and read it often. Five Feathers is sure to become a cherished bedtime favorite

"I recommend this book!" Five Feathers is a remarkable book about a compassionate, altruistic bird (named Five Feathers) that every child should read. Through Five Feathers actions and self-sacrifices, he sends a message concerning the importance of sharing and helping those who are less fortunate. In our modern world, we are lacking ‘sense of community’. No longer do we rely on the generosity and good heartedness of our neighbors to help us in the struggle that is life. Five Feathers represents the morally ideal individual who selflessly contributes to the good of his community simply for the sake of perpetuating the idea of unselfish universal love. I would recommend this book to anyone, especially to those who would like to teach their children about the meaning of sharing and kindness. The surprise heart lifting resolution of the book will be sure to bring smiles to all readers/ listeners and the fantastic text accompanying illustrations will definitely amuse all...
