A Sparrow’s Tale ignites imagination
A Sparrow’s Tale is the delightful journey of a sparrow named Petronia who loves to daydream and is learning to appreciate the world around her. Petronia enjoys singing, playing music on her recorder, hanging out with her best friend Sunny, and making wishes by blowing on Dandelion Wishettes.
Momtrends Tip: A Sparrow’s Tale involves a lot of characters. It's a great book to read together and stop and chat while you are reading. There are thirty-seven unique original characters and twenty inspiring songs woven into 26 original stories.
Why we love Petronia
When we were kids we all had dreams and aspirations. This book helps us tap back into that awesome energy. Petronia is a sparrow, but deep inside wants to be an eagle. The reader is along for the journey as Petronia learns to appreciate her gifts.
