But as little Petite watches her brother and sister take off, she determines she is too scared and simply will not fly. With her family's encouragement she finally tries--and falls--and tries again. And learns an important lesson about fear, failure, and inner strength that will carry her throughout her high-flying life.

When a mother pigeon arrives in Paris, she realizes that it's going to be her new home, even if the skies are grey. So, she gathers the necessary materials and builds her nest high up in a tree. She has the perfect scenery while she sits on her eggs. It isn't long before they hatch and her three babies are ready to learn how to fly. But little Petite can't do it. She has a fear of heights and is terrified to take the leap. However, if she wants to eat, she needs to learn. Her family tries to help her but is it enough?

A PIGEON IN PARIS is an adorable children's book that teaches readers to face their fears. I love the family themes and how the siblings support each other instead of poking fun. The illustrations are cute and burst with life. A pigeon as a main character is perfect for those kids who love birds and the Paris setting gives the story a bit of extra character.

Final Verdict: This is a cute story that I would recommend to children who love animals or for those who might be having a hard time with their fears. The message teaches children to be brave and you can accomplish anything.
