Summary: Soon, Gosling wants siblings. She searches high and low. In the grass and thistles, she finds a baby duckling. She loves the new baby so much that she wants another bird to make the family complete. She soon finds a baby chicken under an oak tree. Come see how these Birds of a Different Feather make their own unique family.

Birds of a Different Feather is a beautifully illustrated and uplifting story of a family that is formed differently than most. This book speaks directly to families comprised of members with differing genetic backgrounds such as adoptive and foster families, blended families with step and half siblings, and families assisted by extensive reproductive technology. However, it shares a message of love and acceptance for all families through its whimsical text and enchanting artistry.
