About the Book

Molly wasn’t looking to have a pet. She prefers climbing trees, eating peanut butter, playing with her dolls, and having breakfast with the birds. But when her little brother thinks he hears a monster in the backyard, everything changes…including friendships. Now, Molly’s adventure with an avian friend leads not only to some discoveries about herself but also to standing in the kitchen sink, having a tea party in a tree house, holding a live bird in her hands, singing into a walkie-talkie, and eating “Oatmeal Mollerino.” She even manages to finally decide on her absolutely, positively most favorite color in the whole wide world—thanks to her special new friend.

Breakfast With The Birds is a delight! Long before I became a professional writer myself, I had a career in children’s book publishing. But I must admit … I would never be able to write for kids with the skill that Jack G Hyman so clearly possesses. This is an utterly charming read that children will enjoy experiencing and learning from, over and over. Highly recommended!
