Edward the Emu - Sheena Knowles

Here is an Emu who is not content with who he is. The grass is greener in the other cage if you ask him, or rather, the water is bluer for the seals next door...I'll be a seal and then he escapes to their pen. Day after day he hears people comment on their favorite animal and he then goes over to other animals cages until one day he realizes that people are there to see him too. When he gets back to his cage his lonely days are over as he meets the new emu who was sent to replace him...her name is Edwina. I really loved this book, great illustrations, great message on being content with who you are. God created us all special and this book reinforces this message of being happy with who you are.
