Jayde is an adorable jaybird with a tiny left wing and a big voice. Although it’s not easy keeping up with the others, it doesn’t stop her from doing what she loves...singing. But Jayde is too shy to share her voice with her family, and only her best friend, Olivia, knows about her hidden talent. Come fly away with Jayde and see what happens when she finally gets the courage to sing loud enough for the whole forest to hear.

About the authors

She taught children with special needs for eight great years and that’s where her stories were born. She lives in Coquitlam with her husband and two kids, O’Shae and Jayde.
