Florina and the Wild Bird

Florina lives in a valley in the Swiss Alps with her mother, father, and brother Ursli. One day, while walking in the mountains, she finds a tiny bird that has lost its mother, and Florina takes the bird home to care for it. The girl and the wild bird soon become best friends. She makes food for it using her doll’s tea set and gives it a special basket for a bed.

When the bird grows up, its wings grow larger and it wants to fly. Florina must decide whether to keep the bird or release it to fly back tp the mountains.

This beloved children’s story is from the Swiss illustrator and author of A Bell for Ursli.

NOTE: This title is out of print.

A little boy named Ursli lives in the Swiss Alps, and he must find a big cowbell so that he can lead the spring procession through his village. He goes alone to his family’s chalet high up in the mountains and, there, he spends a lonely, scary night.

Generations of Swiss children have grown up with the delightful story of Ursli, and now, for the first time, his adventures have become available in English.
