One, two, three four, it's Ostrich that we're rooting for! Sad little Ostrich just wants to hide his head in the sand. It seems EVERYONE he meets is older, bigger, cleverer, stronger, and faster than he is. Lion is four years old (not three and three quarters); Giraffe can reach high up in the trees; Owl thinks he can add two and two; Elephant lifts loads of logs; and Cheetah whizzes by, leaving the others in the dust. But, thanks to his friends, Ostrich finally realizes that there's something very special about him--and it's the most important quality of all. Lively and humorous drawings capture Ostrich's kindness to all creatures--and give children a sweet, appealing message about what really matters in a person.
