This is the story of a sparrow who worries about everything – whether there will be enough to eat, where he will build his new nest, how he will find a mate, whether his family will be eaten by a bird of prey. Then he hears about the Great Father who made and cares for all his creation – even the tiniest sparrow. 

This delightful story has helped, reassured and entertained many thousands of children since it was first published in 1978.
