On a snowy day, a grandmother and grandchild find an injured bird.
They take it home and care for it until it can fly around the living room. It is fantastic—just like everything at Abuela’s house!
But a fantastic moment is also bittersweet, for the little bird’s recovery means that it’s time to let it fly free.
Drawing inspiration from a formative childhood experience, Blanca Gómez crafts a deceptively simple story that is morally and emotionally resonant and brimming with love, wonder, and a deep respect for the natural world.
Look for the Spanish edition, Un pájaro en casa.
