Bird Hugs Blog Tour (review & giveaway)

Bird Hugs 
by Ged Adamson 
Two Lions 

Bernard isn’t like other birds. His wings are impossibly long, and try as he might, he just can’t seem to fly. He’s left wondering what his wings are good for…if they’re even good for anything at all. But a chance encounter with a dejected orangutan leads Bernard to a surprising discovery: that maybe what makes him different is actually something to be embraced. 

Praise for Bird Hugs: 
“Readers will agree: All differences should be hugged, er, embraced.” —Kirkus Reviews 

“The lesson is a simple, familiar one—selflessness and sympathy are key to making friends—but Adamson’s gentle humor and his eager-eyed characters’ yearning become an eloquent testimony to the power of a little TLC.” —Publishers Weekly 

Ged Adamson’s Bird Hugs is an endearing and delightful picture book about a unique bird, named Bernard, whose extra-long wings may not allow him to fly, but make him an extra-special hugger. 

Like Bernard, Bird Hugs has a lot of heart! With infectious funnies, charming storytelling, and a whimsical voice, Bird Hugs delivers a sweet and tender message about embracing and celebrating our differences, and the beautiful power of kindness, friendship, and love. Adamson pairs his heartwarming tale with lushly colored illustrations, full of fun textures, engaging styles, and silly characters and scenes. 

Little readers will delight in Bernard’s joyous journey and wholly embrace Bird Hug’s wonderful message!
