When Melissa A. Jones and her family found an injured blue jay and brought it home to nurse it back to health, the bird returned to them year after year following its release back into the wild. Inspired by this experience, Jones wrote “Squawky: The Little Blue Jay” (published by Trafford Publishing), which tells the true-life story of Squawky the blue jay. The author is embarking on a marketing campaign to expand the book’s reach.
“With the fast pace of life, we often forget about efforts we all could make to get along together and be proud of how we have acted,” says Jones. “This book will remind us all about how compassion for others, whether human or animal, can bring great rewards.”
Featuring colorful illustrations, “Squawky” is an inspirational story about the love between a girl and her father, compassion for wildlife, and the growing bond between humans and animals who need their help.
An excerpt from “Squawky”:
No matter what you are or who you are or what you look like, if we work together and love one another, we can learn to understand one another, and that way we can all survive and be happy forever.
