The Very Worried Sparrow by Meryl Doney


The Very Worried Sparrow by Meryl Doney

This is the story of a sparrow who worries about everything - whether there will be enough to eat, where he will build his new nest, how he will find a mate, whether his family will be eaten by a bird of prey...Then he hears about the Great Father who made and cares for all his creation - even the tiniest sparrow. This delightful story has helped, reassured and entertained many thousands of children since it was first published in 1978.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
