The Birds in the Bamboo Tree
The Birds in the Bamboo Tree is a story of loving parenting among birds. The author was inspired by the view outside her window. Two bulbuls had made a nest in the bamboo plant just outside her apartment corridor.
The birds had fussed over the building of the nest and their new fledglings. The author muses over the power of joint parenting responsibilities, seen even within the animal kingdom.
The black-and-white sketches allow for meaningful conversation as parents and their children add colour to them.
