To Bird or Not to Bird captures the wonderful moment a bird and a worm meet, take the time to get to know one another, and ponder how different things would be if they couldn’t do the wonderful things they do. Bird, with her magical poop, and worm, with his soil aeration skills, show that everyone, no matter how small, has something precious to contribute to this world by simply being themselves.
