I Am Henry Finch
author: Alexis Deacon
illustrator: Viviane Schwarz
The finches live in a big flock that makes such a racket nobody can hear themselves think. But one day a small bird wakes up in quiet darkness and has a thought, and he hears it: I am Henry Finch. . . . I could be great. The next day, the Beast comes, and Henry sees his chanceóbut then a mouth opens wide, and the path to greatness turns out to have some unexpected twists. Delightful illustrations pair with a quirky, funny, and uplifting story for budding philosophers of all ages.
Bravery plays out in surprising ways when a little finch starts having big thoughts.
