The chick that hatches from it is a totally strange bird. He calls himself a "chunkwing" and refuses to eat the worms his parents try to feed him.

He dares to jump out of the robins' nest in a birch tree and embarks on an adventurous search for the one kind of food that will enable him to grow wings. In his search he is helped by an unlikely assortment of friends, including a cat, a priest and a friendly witch and her daughter. Children and adults alike will be captivated by the Peter Brooks’ delightful, poetic story and the wonderful, creative illustrations by Sarah Oliver that bring Chungleberry Bunting to life. As a special bonus, every book includes access to an audio version of the story, read by author. It took author Richard Gene, Ph.D., nearly thirty years to construct and record his comprehensive model of the Spirit World. Unlike many other books on spirituality Gene’s model in “Connections with the Spirit World,” is non-judgmental and inclusive. He maintains that humans cannot formulate complete models and that there are no incorrect models, only incomplete ones. It explains why we sleep, why dreams tend to be surrealistic, how our body knows how to heal, how instincts and intuition work, how we have a natural partnership with our creator and why we need to make it mutually beneficial for our creator and ourselves. His model explains how we receive spiritual guidance every moment of every day. “Connections with the Spirit World” offers a refreshing new perspective that will help you grow spiritually LOVE’S O RPHAN By Ildiko Scott MY JOU RNEY TO MEET JANE GO O DALL By Gregg Chavaria Born in 1947 to a family decimated by the Holocaust, Ildiko Scott's gripping memoir of life in post-war Hungary is a timeless story of hope and faith. After the divorce of her parents, Ildiko spent most of her youth in a Jewish orphanage where she witnessed the Hungarian revolution of 1956 and the brutal Soviet occupation that followed. After attempting to escape the country with her father, Ildiko was eventually able to immigrate to America, where she found a new life, an enduring love, and a long and successful career in the fashion industry. Love’s Orphan puts the reader at the center of a turbulent era in European history, and shows how a young girl's faith enabled her to overcome fear and poverty and realize her dream of a new life in America. This is a fictionalized account of a true travel tale that follows a discouraged young journalist from California to war-torn Croatia. There he meets and is smitten by a young woman who leads him to Africa: Nairobi Kenya; the Savannah Grasslands; Dar es Salaam, Tanzania and the Gombe National Reserve, where they live and work briefly with the legendary Dr. Jane Goodall. Together they embark on a journey through the great continent and into each other’s hearts.
