It takes a strong team to keep the Hotel running smoothly, and Elevator Bird is at the center of it all.
He helps guests get to their rooms and gives great advice about all the best sights in town. He helps the staff get where they need to go, and always has an encouraging word. Elevator Bird makes everyone's day brighter.
So when he confesses to his friend Mousie that he's always longed for a room with a view, Mousie springs into action. All his friends at the Hotel hatch a marvelous plan to make sure Elevator Bird has the nest he deserves.
Sarah Williamson spins a charming tale of friends working together to make a dream come true.
What I loved: This is a simple story of kindness and working together to make someone else's dream come true. It's a straight-forward but lovely story. The many animals that run the hotel all have a fun little feature, and there are some little funny tidbits here and there (like Randy getting and eating the candy!). The main themes of friendship and kindness really shine through and make for a heartwarming and sweet story.
Final verdict: ELEVATOR BIRD is a sweet picture book about friendship and making other's dreams come true. Highly recommend for animal lovers who enjoy an uplifting and simple story.
