The little red bird lives in a golden cage and has everything she needs. But she's always wanted to fly...so she hops out of her cage, then out of the window, then across the sky and to a park. She sees so much, discovers so many new and wonderful things, but at the end of the day, she's tired, she's hungry, and she sees her cage far away. Now she has to make a choice. The book ends with "What would you do?"
A fun, rhyming, lyrical book with adorable illustrations that encourages thought. With an older child, I'd expect a discussion to follow concerning secruity v. excitement.
