Big Blue is a cautionary tale for all of us, but especially children who may not realize that their actions can have unexpected consequences. Big Blue is a happy bird, and a member of a large family that spends their winters in the warm south. Big Blue gets lazy though and instead of working, he lies about, eating and sleeping. Soon, the flock leaves but Blue is too fat and heavy to go, so he spends the winter cold, but working hard to get back in shape. Next year, Big Blue isn't called ""big"" because of his size but because he is now strong, fit and the leader of the flock.
