Opal's Springtime Birdhouse
A charming picture book tale that showcases how the rewards of our efforts can come from the most unexpected of places.
Bang! Whack! Whirrr!
It’s time for a birdhouse-building contest! Opal’s friends all have endless ideas on how to make their constructions stand out. There are bells, pom-poms, basketballs, and many more materials to use–and yet Opal still feels stuck. Maybe a simple, sturdy piece of wood…a few nails and screws will be just right. But when the judges don’t pick Opal’s birdhouse, she may still discover that her humble home is just right for someone else. In this charming picture book tale, creators Emily Matheis and Albert Arrayas showcase how the rewards of our efforts can come from the most unexpected of places.
