Rosie the Raven by Helga Bansch

This is a light, fanciful story about a family of ravens.  They have one egg that is different colored and when it hatches, there's a little pink girl in it...

Annick Press and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can grab a copy now.

Her raven parents don't care what she looks like or that she can't caw well and she can't fly.  She tries.  She even tries to grow feathers.  Her dad finds her some clothes so she won't freeze to death.  The other birds and animals have things to say about her but her parents ignore them.

Her siblings grow and leave the nest for their own lives but Rosie is still there.  When it's time for the birds to migrate, they come up with a unique way to get Rosie in the air.  

This is a sweet tale with lovely illustrations and it would make a great bedtime story.  Let your child fly away into their dreams after reading about Rosie.
