The Gift Jeri Anne Agee, Bryan Langdo
Birdie Mae Hayes is a small-town girl with big ideas. Like she wants to befriend the new boy in school—only his daddy runs the rival grocery store to her daddy’s. And she can’t have him over because her little brother Bubba is always running around naked. But Birdie has more on her mind than boys and grocery-store wars. Birdie realizes she sees things happen. Before they happen. And it turns out her grandma, and other ladies in the family, have the same gift. Birdie’s not sure she’s ready to take on this responsibility . . . but this is one gift you can’t give back.

About the author

Blake, and then at the Art Students’ League of NY, where he focused on life drawing and portrait painting. After that he earned a BA in English from Rutgers College. Bryan is the illustrator of over thirty books. His picture book Tornado Slim and the Magic Cowboy Hat won a 2012 Spur Award for Storytelling from Western Writers of America. In addition to his work as an illustrator and writer, Bryan works as an editor for an ESL website and app. Bryan lives in Hopewell, NJ, with his wife and two children. When not working, he likes to be in the woods.

Jeri Anne Agee grew up in Huntsville, Alabama, and graduated from the University of Alabama with a bachelor’s degree in communications. An avid reader and a mother of three, Jeri Anne retired early from the financial industry and, at the age of forty-four, began writing her first children’s book. Her quest to combine her own stories of growing up in the South with a character who is strong, lovable, loyal, and funny resulted in Birdie Mae Hayes.
