Coretta Scott King Award winner Ashley Bryan adapted this charming tale from a story told by the Ilaspeaking people of Zambia. All the birds in the forest are jealous of Blackbird, whose black feathers glisten and shine colorfully in the sunbeams. The other birds are a single color from head to foot, and none of them have even a spot of black on their feathers. Blackbird tells them that true color is on the inside, but still the birds long for black feathers. So Blackbird brews a batch of blackening to decorate all his friends.

    " this book was interesting the moment i looked at the cover. the first thing that came to my mind was the bird on the front looks like a reference of some symbol that is on anther book and maybe it has to have a meaning almost like it. well when i started to read the book i was amazed to learn that it talked about how each bird is different and how they came to receive their different colors and shapes. but in the long run i knew that the bird on the cover was just a picture and that there was no way the two books could be related so i took it from there and just kept on reading. Beautiful Blackbird was a favorite from the start i would recommend this book to all people who like to understand where and why almost everything is different and where creation is born. "
