The Birds’ Bakery features six-year-old Kai, who discovers his parents’ bakery and café may need to close due to financial troubles. Kai is heartbroken, as the beloved bakery is his safe haven. Kai brings his friend Nia a heart jam cookie from the bakery every morning. And he helps his parents at the confectionery, every afternoon, after kindergarten. The bakery used to be bustling with customers clamoring for pastries and sweets. Now, for some unknown reason, it’s empty—the only visitors are birds! But Kai’s creativity and ingenuity lead to a fantastical plan for the bakery that could bring customers flocking back.
The Birds’ Bakery is a flurry of fun with a powerful lesson: Little children can solve big problems, if they’re brave enough to spread their wings and fly. The book is, first and foremost, an entertaining story, but it also illustrates how every crisis offers potential for growth and opportunity. Facing the unknown can be scary, but if we take stock of everything around us, unexpected and unlikely answers often come. We just have to use our imaginations. The Birds’ Bakery shows that everybody, including children, can change their reality. It also instills values such as kindness and an appreciation for nature, family, and strangers.
