Description Product Details
Find out how the mockingbird, Molly Mockingbird that is, became the official state bird of Texas!

When Molly Mockingbird enters the Texas State Bird Pageant, the other birds call her a "copy-bird," because she only mimics their songs. But thanks to her best friend Gabby Green Jay, Molly discovers her "own true voice" and finds the courage to, at last, sing her own original song. Proud Texans, natives and transplants alike, hold on to your tail feathers and get ready for the Texas State Bird Pageant. It's a bird bonanza, extravaganza.

All Texans, young and old, will love Molly's contest-winning song, the Texas Pride: What I Love About Texas song printed on the back of the book. Here are the last few stanzas:

She's mesquite and pecans and old wagon wheels,
She's soft like the blessing we say before meals.
Mesas and beaches, haciendas and lakes,
She's strong yet she's gentle. She's got what it takes!
She's there in the plains, and in every church bell,
She wears a bluebonnet; I know her so well...
She's an unspoken truth, you feel deep inside,
"Texas, Our Texas," my home and my PRIDE!

The entire lyrics and music are on the inside front cover. Get out your keyboard and sing with pride!
