All of the little birds have learned to fly - except Little Owl. The others explain that it's easy: all he has to do is say "abracadabra". At first, it doesn't work, and Little Owl thinks the "magic" word is broken! But as he gets better and better, he realizes that the real magic is in himself. This book teaches children how to face challenges and keep trying, despite setbacks. Includes a Note to Parents and Caregivers with tips for encouraging kids to persevere.
