Be Light like a Bird

(3) 4-6 When twelve-year-old Wren's father dies in a plane accident, her bitter and distant mother moves them three times in the weeks following. Settling in Upper Peninsula Michigan, devastated and lonely Wren returns to birdwatching--a hobby she shared with her dad--which helps her grieve and ultimately leads to new friendships. A quiet and thoughtful look at how complicated grief can be.
