Are you looking for a great Children's book for your little one? Something to read to them before bed or even something to teach them some valuable life lessons? Well look no further. We would like to present to you Benjamin Birdie's First Flight by Michael Dotsikas. Benjamin Birdie is a little bird with a BIG dream -- anxious to fly and be free. Against his Mama's warnings that he's "NOT yet ready to fly," Benjamin Birdie takes a leap of faith and suddenly finds himself free-falling. What is Benjamin Birdie to do? This well written storybook is filled with lessons that your little one will always remember. 
Like Benjamin Birdie, Surya Brasil started off small, but had big dreams. With the help and support of great people that have helped get where we are today and continue on our mission. We have an amazing team, staff, suppliers, service providers and customers that share our values and believe that together we can make the world a better place. Our supporters helped us grow just like the animals that help Benjamin Birdie. Also at the very end of the book there is a list of the endangered animals mentioned in the book. This is very important to our social division, Surya Solidarity, as we work tirelessly to protect animals, preserve the environment, and create transformation through education, as well as human rights. We had the privilege of speaking with the author about where he gets his ideas from and his future plans. Check out the interview below.
Interviewer:  When and why did you begin writing?

Michael: I have always had the desire to write, but didn’t think it was something I would pursue professionally until very recently. When my children were young, I would read to them every day. Some of the great stories we read inspired us greatly. And now, through my writing, I want to be able to inspire children (and adults) to continue to read, write and become anything they desire. 

Interviewer: Where do you get your information or ideas for your books?

Michael: The ideas for books come from everyday experiences. An idea can come from a short observation or a quick encounter. Then a whole story comes alive in my head. I make sure to take lots of notes so I don’t forget things.

Interviewer: What do you think makes a good story?

Michael: Since I love writing children’s books, I feel a good children’s story has to be fun not only for the child but also for the adult who is reading to or with the child. This way their time together is engaging and conversational. In addition to being entertaining, a good story should also teach valuable life lessons.

Interviewer: Do you prefer to create books for children or adults?

Michael: I prefer to write for children because of the joy it brings me to see a young child enthralled or be inspired by something I’ve written.

Interviewer: What values/lessons did you want Benjamin Birdie to convey?

Michael: The story of Benjamin Birdie conveys many lessons:

- with love, friends and support you can accomplish anything

- one who is surrounded by great friends, no matter what their characteristics or nationalities, can achieve success and peace

- working together helps one accomplish their goals

- small, partial victories together can help achieve an ultimate goal

- honesty can result in hugs and love even when one makes a mistake

- children should listen to their parents, as they have the most valuable advice for them
