This book really touched me, and I just couldn't keep the tears back. There are very little words, and the ones that are there are short and to the point. The illustrations are simple as well, but represent so many emotions and so much pain I could hardly stand it. It is sad when any living thing is neglected and in pain, and the bird in the story could have easily been replaced with a cat, dog, child, or neglected person of some kind. The child was not just healing the broken wing, but mending the bird's feelings as well. "With rest, time, and a little hope" all manner of things can be healed. The simplicity juxtaposes the depth of this story and makes it that much more touching.
