The Beggar and the Bluebird by Anthony DeStefano, tells the story of a little bluebird that is delayed in flying south for the winter, because of the unusual requests of a local street beggar. The beggar asks the bird to deliver bread to a homeless man, money to a widow with children, and a gold cross to a sick boy. As the bird performs these acts of mercy, he gets stuck in a terrible winter snowstorm. All things seem lost until an amazing turn of events reveals the true identity of the street beggar.
Readers will learn the true meaning of gift-giving and shows that acts of love are always rewarded by God-though often not in ways we can predict. Hardcover, 32 pages
