The Higgledy-Piggledy Pigeon

The Higgledy-Piggledy Pigeon by Don M. Winn can be used to show children that if someone has trouble with one kind of learning, he or she is still a talented person; that sometimes we need a tool to help us learn; that there is always more than one way to learn something; and that anybody can succeed, despite learning differences or difficulties.

Back of book description:

The Higgledy-Piggledy Pigeon is about a homing pigeon named Hank who is an eager new student in flight school. He loves school until he discovers he has no sense of direction. Is this the end of his dreams? Maybe he should just quit. But a kind teacher shows him how he can compensate for his problem and still succeed. This story is about how everyone learns in different ways, and how anyone can succeed–even despite a learning problem – with the right kind of help and effort!

“Hank's story lets children know that we all have challenges [and] reminds parents that while children may develop certain learning skills more slowly than others do, they are not necessarily limited for life.”
