A Story About Having the Courage to Dream Big In Songbird, author Jenn Larson encourages kids to believe in their dreams—even when no one else does. With delightful illustrations and an inspiring message, this book shows kids what it looks like to set a goal and work hard to reach it. While most birds dream of being seed gatherers or nest builders, Sydney Sparrow has a dream that is a little bit out of the ordinary. She wants to be a great conductor with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra! But when the other birds start questioning her dream, Sydney wonders if she has set her sights too high. But with a little courage and determination—and a whole lot of practice—Sydney Sparrow turns her dream into a reality. And when she does, it’s truly music to everyone’s ears!
