This is the first book that teaches the four styles to children as they discover the bird kingdoms…and themselves
For more than three decades, author, speaker, and entrepreneur Merrick Rosenberg has taught America’s leading corporations how to embrace the power of personality. By replacing the alphabet soup found in personality assessments with four birds – the Eagle, Parrot, Dove, and Owl – Rosenberg has helped people understand themselves and transform their relationships with colleagues, friends, and family members. Parents and teachers have long asked: Can you teach the birds to our children?
Readers ages 8-12 follow a group of 5th graders to Camp Discovery for adventures (and misadventures) under the guidance of their teachers, Ms. Allport and Mr. Marston. By day, the students try to overcome their personality differences to complete Ms. Allport’s team building challenges. By night, Mr. Marston tells The Bird Tale, a fantasy adventure that follows four emissaries from the Eagle, Parrot, Dove, and Owl kingdoms of Aviara. Their world faces disaster, but they are unsure of how to work together against their collective threats. The emissaries seek out the wise Chameleon Ambassador in hopes that she can teach them how to unite and save their people.
Through a wild ride in Aviara and Camp Discovery, Which Bird Are You? prepares children for the lifelong journey of interacting with different personalities. Young readers learn to understand their bird style, its strengths and challenges, and the risks of overusing their personality. They also discover how to identify the bird styles of others and treat people the way they want to be treated.
Will the emissaries save Aviara? Will the students learn to work together? If they can master the four questions of the Chameleon Code, they might just save the day and win it all.
