This month’s book is Nubs: A Little Bird with a Big Story by Kristin Ludwig.This book tells the true story of Nubs, a little one footed budgie. Nubs was rescued from a hoarder house that contained 500 birds. He was taken to a shelter where he was cleaned up and cared for. “The Lady with the Ponytail” (the author and volunteer who cared for Nubs) eventually took him home to live with her. Nubs was joined in his new home by Freckles (another one footed budgie) and became a certified Pet Partner therapy animal.
Cooper loved this book. She liked the message that it’s okay to be different and that every day is a chance for a fresh start. She also liked the big colorful budgie photos.
100% of the author’s excess revenue supports the ongoing care of Nubs’ flock, who now live at the Washington Park Zoo in Michigan City, Indiana.
