Little Bird was originally written in French and translated by Claudia Zoe Bedrick of Enchanted Lion Books.

Korean designer Young-jun Kim created this charming animation based on the book.

The entire story unfolds with few words and primary colors, but mesmerizes with its evocative honesty and gentle sophistication, inviting readers of all ages to look again and again as we rediscover our inner child’s gift for finding infinite beauty and curiosity in the little things.

A lovely quote from an e. e. cummings poem graces the first page:
may my heart always be open to little
birds who are the secrets of living
