Hello Sita! Congratulations on your recent release of Birds of a Feather! I love that it's bibliotherapy meets STEM, and explores the peafowl family. Every person will relate to Mo's journey to find his unique identity and place in the world. All of the THINK QUICK themes below appear in your book. Let's see which way you lean. Remember... THINK QUICK!
Stand out or blend in?
Definitely be your true self even if it means standing out!
Independent affirmations or group support?
Group support is important but it’ll only help once you’ve built a strong foundation of self-confidence.
Shake it off or trust your gut?
Always go with your instincts!
Retreat or Regroup?
Regroup, always! Give things another chance.
On Discovering Abilities:
Try new things or practice old habits?
I’m always up for trying new things.
Be the best you or fake it ‘til you make it?
Be the best you! It’s all about being comfortable with who you are.
On Color Palates:
Bright ‘n bold or fresh ‘n white?
Depends on my mood. I like both palates.
On Rescue or Heroes:
Be your own hero or rely on your friends?
This is a tricky one. But self-belief and support of friends, both can be equally important.
Start a movement or follow?
Start a movement.
On Books: (wink, wink)
Birds of a Feather or Birds of a Feather?
Ha! Good one! Let me see.
Ummm… Birds of a Feather, any day!
Thank you for stopping by, Sita! We enjoyed learning more about you and the themes of your book.
Carrie's review of Birds of a Feather by Sita Singh:
Who knew that a delightful bibliotherapy story could teach so much about peacocks? Main character Mo's journey to find his individuality and strengths took me back to my love for stories like The Ugly Duckling and Tacky the Penguin. This story will also inspire research efforts in my students, especially peacocks, but other animals, too. The author's note offers an amazing cultural pull and the back matter offers interesting peafowl family facts, as well.
