The Day I Became a Bird by Ingrid Chabbert - ADVISABLE

Chabbert, Ingrid The Day I Became a Bird illustrated by Guridi. PICTURE BOOK. Kids Can Press, 2016 $16.95. 

A little boy falls in love with Sylvia, the bird loving girl who sits in front of him.  Unfortunately, Sylvia's love of birds keeps her so occupied she doesn't notice the little boy.  In an effort to win her heart, the little boy dresses up as a bird.  Although it makes life at school considerably more difficult, the little boy is rewarded not only with Sylvia's attention, but a hug that makes his heart soar.  

This was a cute first crush story with quirky illustrations that add an abstract feel to the story.
