I LOVE this book. I use it with my 4th grade students during writing workshop to introduce the idea of writing about a small moment. I also refer to Little Bird during our schoolyard field guide work. The text speaks for itself...just read it.
Some days are different.
One could almost believe that one day is just like another.
But some have something a little more.
Just a small thing.
Most of the time we don't notice these things.
Because the little things are not made to be noticed.
They are there to be discovered.
When we take time to look for them...
the small things appear.
Here or there.
But suddenly so present...
they seem enormous.
The small things are treasures.
There are no greater treasures than the little things.
One is enough to enrich the moment.
Just one is enough to change the world.
