You may never have been fond of pigeons in the past, but after reading the Mom's Choice Award and Pinnacle Book Achievement Award winning "My Pigeon Heart" (written for kids ages 5-13), you will look at pigeons in an entirely different light. Meet Midgie, a small orphaned white pigeon. She lives in a big city on a very special building--a beautiful cathedral. Her favorite resting spot is on a ledge next to a stained glass window, where she can hear the cathedral choir sing beautiful hymns and songs about God and Jesus. She describes her hard life in the big city, always searching for food and being hungry, although Sister Margaret Teresa, a kind cathedral nun, sometimes supplies the pigeons with biscuit crumbs. Midgie believes that God and His Son, Jesus, live inside the cathedral. She waits for them to come outside. They never do, so she believes they must have moved. Taking the advice of a song she heard, "Seek Jesus and you shall find Him," she begins her journey to the country to find Jesus. Trouble and great miracles await her
