The repeated song throughout is "Fly free, fly free, in the sky so blue. When you do a good deed it will come back to you". It is a simple story reminding us that we are all connected and that no good deed goes unnoticed.

When you do a good deed, it will come back to you. Mai loves feeding the caged birds near the temple but dreams that one day she'll see them fly free. Then she meets Thu and shares the joy of feeding the birds with her. This sets a chain of good deeds in motion that radiates throughout her village and beyond. Set in Vietnam, Roseanne Thong's inspiring story, an Asian-Pacific American Librarians Association Honor Book, is elegantly illustrated with watercolor on wood by Eujin Kim Neilan.
  • Beautiful book about how kind deeds flow from one person to the next. My 4-year old loves it.

  • Enjoyed reading to grandkids.

  • I was invited to read this book to my son's school as a part of the Maine Chickadee Reading Contest. It was sheer joy. The illustrations are as beautiful as the message. It is a wonderful way to talk to your children about the importance of doing good deeds and of the power of loving action. I highly recommend this book!

  • I wish more people knew about this wonderful book! We own it and read it often. The repeated song throughout is "Fly free, fly free, in the sky so blue. When you do a good deed it will come back to you". It is a simple story reminding us that we are all connected and that no good deed goes unnoticed.
    Make World Kindness Day be everyday!
    I often receive items for reviewing purposes, but this was bought and reviewed on my own. Highly recommended!!

  • This is a book about karma. It is explained in a simplistic fashion that any child can understand this important Buddhist ideology. Even from a Christian perspective, this concept is understandable. It does make sense when you think "what comes around, goes around." Also, Jesus taught us, "love your neighbor as yourself" so I believe this concept is important in both religious traditions. I enjoy the simple verse repeated over and over in the text:

    "Fly fee, fly free,
    in the sky so blue.
    When you do a good deed,
    it will come back to you."

    This book teaches not only karma but about the Christian concepts of charity and kindness. Children and adults will do well to be reminded that it is important to practice "random acts of kindness" and that this behavior will be rewarded, eventually, in some way. Creating a culture of kindness has never been needed more than it is today. The author states that these acts are "A wheel of kindness existed in people's hearts." I would agree that we need to cultivate these "wheels of kindness" and this book does a great job at pointing this out.

  • A vendor close to the temple gates sold sparrows from a cage. While Mai enjoyed feeding them, she longed to have enough money to purchase the sparrows and set them free. One day a good deed that she performed initiated more good deeds and exchanges that made each person better off. Would this chain of events makes its way back to those sparrows?

    Economic concepts are subtly integrated into the story, with scenes involving a marketplace and different kinds of vendors. With its rural Vietnamese setting, this book provides a nice opportunity to introduce children to ways of life in another country.

  • I love this book - it's a wonderful story. So does my 4 year old daughter - she has memorized the sweet verse / mantra repeated in the book and I often hear her saying it to herself. We do not own it and have only checked it out from the library but love it so much that it's on our list to be a permanent addition to her library soon. We'll also be getting one as a gift for her cousins too.

  • Charming story about sharing and caring.
