On the Caribbean island, young Simon loves to help Pops with his bird hospital. When Simon discovers a flamingo with a broken leg, he knows exactly where to take him. At the end of the summer when it is time to release the mended bird, Simon is sad and has to confront the difficulty of the bird’s independence. Simon misses the flamingo and asks his mother if she will miss him when he must go.
This is a great little book to remind a child that you will always love and care for them and miss them when it is time for them to experience a bit of independence; for example, going to school for the first time.
