Author E. M. Bradbury's Little Bird faces that problem. When she and her family move to a new tree near a pond, Little Bird wants nothing more than to make new friends, but the frogs that live in the pond are so different. Discover how Little Bird and the frogs-well, most of them-eventually become friends. It wasn't always easy, but they kept at it.
Little Bird shows that animals that are different can be friends if they're willing to work hard at it and embrace their similarities. Just because you're different doesn't mean you can't be friends.

Read an Excerpt
One day, Little Bird's family moved to a tree overlooking a small pond. Having no other birds to make friends with, Little Bird decided to try to make friends with the little frogs.
The frogs did not chirp, and Little Bird could not croak. She tried and tried. After a while she was able to manage a croak, but it always sounded a little like a chirp. Some of the frogs saw her trying to croak and understood that she wanted to play. They played together on the lily pads, and Little Bird practiced hopping.
Time passed. Little Bird played with the frogs every day, and her croaking improved. She now understood most of what the frogs around her were saying. She even taught the frogs a chirp or two.
Then one day a big bullfrog was at the pond. She heard him say to one of the other frogs, "Look at that silly bird hopping on the lily pads. She is trying to hop like us, but she will never be a frog." Most of the frogs were shocked by the bullfrog, but Little Bird had already started to walk away.
Little Bird was sad. It was a long time before she visited the pond again.(Continues…)
