Bear’s bright yellow birthday kite may not last very long, but luckily he gets to trade it in for something much more valuable in this absolutely darling book on repurposing goods and finding friendship. The poetic wording and soft colors flow through the story like a dream. Recommended By Aubrey W., Powells.com

Bear’s kite gets stuck in a tree and rips, but Bird shows him that beauty can come from broken things.
Bear receives a bright yellow kite for his birthday and flies it until...it gets stuck in a tree and rips. Oh, Bear. Lucky for Bear, Bird is busy building a nest and flies his broken kite home, where an even better surprise awaits him. A story about nature, renewal, and friendship — the best gift of all.
