Spreading My Wings
Illustrated by Ella Bailey0-5 years
A touching story about being proud of who we are and embracing our differences, written by TV star Nadiya Hussain.
I am a boy, and this is Rayf, my bird.
Rayf is my friend.
On his first day of holiday camp, a little boy arrives with his bird best friend perched proudly on his shoulder, but he soon discovers that he is different from everyone else - no one else has a bird. He hides Rayf away to try and fit in but it's hard to pretend to be someone else for long.
A beautiful story about finding the confidence to spread your wings and fly as your true self.
