Emma The Eager Emu

Emma is a bird with tenacity and determination. She will not let her differences overcome her dreams. She learns that through practise she can strive to achieve her goal, even if it does take thinking a little outside of the box.

Emma the Eager Emu is at flying school with all her other Australian bird friends. She tries to fly from a rock, she tries to fly from an old car, Emma even tries climbing a tree! But no matter how hard she tries to fly, Emma just can’t seem to fit in.

Will Emma ever learn to fly? Will she ever accept her differences?

A beautifully illustrated picture book of magnificent Australian birds, each unique in their own way.

A subtle tale for pre-schoolers and the early school years where they learn all about individualism, and owning your unique special qualities. Emma also teaches the importance of never giving up on your dreams. That through hard work and practice it is possible to do whatever you set your mind to achieve.
