Award winning author Karen Tyrrell has produced her latest book Song Bird for children that continues building self-esteem while teaching life lessons. Both child and adult have sometime in their lives wanted to emulate a superhero. ^ Tyrrell takes this concept to another level as lead character Rosella Ava Bird "Rosie" has a dream of flying. She would build a flying machine from an old bike but it would fail.

Throughout the book she battles internal and external conflicts. Frank Furter, the bully and next-door neighbor will continually mock her including in school. Discover how Rosie deals with conflict and exchanges her school label as a geeky science kid to a hero song bird. Her dream of flying would lead her to believe it was her destiny as she desires to rescue people.

At the new school she would meet Amy who was in a wheelchair and they would form a friendship. Children learn to not judge others or discriminate based on differences. There will be a uniqueness in Rosella's voice that initially gets her in trouble, and then later rises her to fame and popularity. Read the book to discover how singing power can be converted to flying power.

Rosie will enter a science fair and the course of events will cascade her upward(literally). The generosity she extends toward Amy will teach children to live a selfless life. It is a resource dealing with life issues children face:
– Bullying
– Changing locations/schools
– Following one's passion
– Friendships
– Hard, persistent work
– Facing stereotypes

Each chapter is very interesting and will engage children from start to finish. Another recommended resource, I give it five stars.

'This is SO good. You HAVE to read this!' said my 9-yr old daughter as she finished Song Bird Superhero. She's a fickle reader, but she read this book in two days, then took it to school to show her friends. When I asked her what she liked best, she said 'I loved that the superhero had to discover her superpowers and learn how to use them, instead of just knowing straightaway.'

Song Bird Superhero is such a fun read. Rosella Ava Bird, the heroine, wants to fly and spends her time inventing all kinds of wonderful contraptions, like mechanical wings and a flying Robo-Maid which accidentally washes the cat. As the book progresses she discovers her superpowers, but the boy next door, Frank Furter, seems intent on ruining her life. While struggling with Frank's bullying tactics, Rosella also has to deal with the reactions and disbelief of her family and peers/teachers at school as she struggles to control her powers.

On [...] you can download Teacher's Notes and activities, perfect for the classroom. As an ex-teacher, Karen has aligned Song Bird Superhero with 'Kids Matter' and STEM science in the Australian curriculum.

A fun, empowering, inspiring read for middle grade children everywhere.

Rosella Bird is inspired by two things: the flying machines of her hero, Leonardo Da Vinci and music. Song Bird is a story about following dreams, persisting despite frequent failures, and taking down the town's evil genius to save the day. Watch this Song Bird soar! Readers are in for the ride of a lifetime.’

Karen writes a vivid story that's allows us to be Rosie & walk in her shoes. I felt like I had been transported back to my own primary school days.

I loved the humor in the book. While making me laugh it helped to break up the nastiness & bullying of "The Furter" & made the book seem more real.

This is defiantly a book I will be reading to my Grandson. Bullying happens, & if you understand that it ok to talk about it, then something can be done.

Don't let the Furters of the world decide what you life experience will be or be less than it can be.

Thank you Karen for an uplifting (pun intended) read & I can't wait for the next book in this series.
