My class loved the beautiful story about a little bird who is lying on the sidewalk with a broken wing. Everyone is in such a hurry that they walk by without even noticing. Everyone that is, except a small boy. He takes the bird home and cares for it until it is ready to be set free. This is a beautiful story about love, hope, caring and giving of oneself to care for others. Last year I used part of this story for a lesson on zooming in on a small moment.
