Our family loved this little board book! The colors were so bright and the drawings helped depict expressions whether it was happiness, fear, or sadness very good!

The story itself was perfect in displaying how God love's is always with us whether were going through hard times or good! The way Firebird understands this truth in the story was presented in a way where young children can understand too!

I think this is a great little board book for little hands to look at and have parents read! Ther

Writer, director and film composer, Brent McCorkle joins with author Amy Parker to produce Firebird, an inspirational picture book for children ages four and up. The well-written message draws a simple analogy between life’s storms, common doubts and God’s unchanging love. Beautiful colorful illustrations by Disney animators, Rob Corley and Chuck Vollmer enhance the story and invite youngsters to pick up the book.

The story begins with a baby oriole that his mother named Firebird because of his b

I thought the book was for kids, but if I was a kid I would enjoy it. My sister did. It doesn’t have a lot of words in it. The book is in a movie and tells about the author.

The book is about a baby bird that wonders why the storms take the sun away. The mom tells him that in time he will know when he gets stronger. When he gets stronger and older, he flies up past the clouds. He finds out that the sun is still there. Now whenever the storms come out, he knows that the sun is still there and he i

My twin sister Holly bought this book two weeks before she died and told me how she thought the bird was so cute. Later when collecting her things I found it and read this book. I felt that she had bought this book for me and was leaving it for me to remind me that through the storms of life God is with us always. I know Holly is watching over our family as well along with our beautiful mother.

A wonderful, uplifting story for children and adults.
The illustrations are beautiful and really make you want to leave this book lying around to read whenever you need a pick me up.
Firebird is a young oriole and questions why God allows the rain to take the sun away. His mother helps him find that that isn't the
case. He rejoices in finding out the sun is always there.
A thoughtful gift for any celebration in your life.

This is the delightful and colorful story of Firebird who always complained about the rain hiding the sun until his mother challenged him to ‘ride the clouds.' An allegory regarding God.

Your children will love the many caricatures of Firebird’s many poses! They will have you and your children giggling in delight!

One of THE most heart-warming stories of all my life. I purchased this book for my 6 year old daughter who is a melanoma survivor diagnosed at the age of 4 to give to her as a birthday gift. This story is her life if I had written it myself.
