Barb the bird of hope

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Wanda Luthman’s Children’s Book Blog!

Today, I have a book with a message that I think we all could use…one of HOPE!

Zowie Norris, the author, is here to tell us more about it…

In a laburnum tree in the Centre of Bretton Park, lives a unique bird called Barb. Her beauty and originality attract the attention of the other birds and park visitors, who see her as a symbol of hope, bringing them much comfort and happiness.

She is loved by many and in return is grateful for her life and her friends.

When things take a turn for the worst, Barb’s instinct is to fly away from her troubles …

Will things get better? Can hope be restored?

Zowie Norris is delighted to share her first published story. She graduated with an English and teaching  degree at Bretton Hall in 1998 and has until this point, shared her passion for creative writing with her two daughters, Phoebe and Jasmine and  for the past 17 years as a primary teacher,  6 years as a senior leader in schools in South Yorkshire, England. 

Her aim was always to publish her work for other children to enjoy too. Zowie had a happy childhood, a close family who encouraged her creativity and has many positive memories which she aims to replicate with her husband and daughters.

The loss of her beloved mother and the anxieties around the pandemic have highlighted the importance of family, gratitude and helping others to have hope too, inspiring her to write this story.

Thank you, Zowie, for sharing this book with us today…we all could use a little HOPE! I’m so sorry for the loss of your beloved mother. Mums give us such a sense of security. Their loss is deeply felt. No one replaces our Mum.

Thank you, dear blog readers, for stopping by today. I hope you will pick up a copy to share with your favorite child or two or three!

As always, likes, comments, and shares are much appeciated!

Stay safe!
