About Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird
Cindy and Her Beautiful Bird is an exquisite book about Cindy and her loving moments with Amy, her pet bird. This is a story of the intimacy and challenges of a little girl called Cindy and her beautiful songbird, Amy. Cindy’s bird, Amy, affected her positively. It shows how children can be attached with pets once a cordial relationship has been formed. In this story, Cindy showed us that children can have unwavering faith, even if it seemed goofy, unrealistic, and an illusion! Despite all odds about the whereabouts of Cindy’s bird, she kept believing and having faith.

Yes, I love children.” —Kingsley Osajie

Nomination of Cindy And Her Beautiful for 2020 Readers’ Choice Award
When I began writing Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird I did not set the intention for it to be nominated for the Readers’ Choice Awards. But even as it is nominated it does not make me feel proud and I am certainly not proud of it. After all, it is just a nomination.
In 2011; I published my first book. On my way home from my publishers’ house I was in the car; I picked a newspaper to read and the next thing I saw on the second page was the news of 25 years old Serbian girl who won the Orange Prize for Fiction. Her name is Tea Obreht and the title of her book is Tiger’s Wife. I looked at Tea Obreht holding her Orange Prize Award and I marveled. On top of that, she was going home with £30,000! That was something illustrious, enviable and highly remarkable!
I wrote Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird in 2013 when I was in College. It took me this long to have it published because of the challenges I had (I will share my journey to becoming a published author in my next post). In 2020, Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird was officially born. It was no longer a manuscript; it became a published book. I felt happy seeing it published and holding it as a published book. Now, let me share with you how the nomination for the Readers’ Choice Awards began.
The Universe and the Cosmic Forces are always listening to us. This life is really wonder-full…so on this very fateful day; I was reading about this American singer Chanté Moore. What led me to reading about her was her song I See You In A Different Light featuring JoJo Hailey. (side note: I really love this song; especially where Chante Moore said “When did your kisses get so sweet baby…”). I never knew of this song until I watched a sweet-loving video it was used as a background music. Good, Good Loving! I tell ya!! (LMFAO).
After reading through her Wikipedia I noticed that she had more nominations than ACTUAL Awards. I was like, “damn! Please! Don’t give me any nominations! To hell with nominations! In fact, I refuse to have nominations. What are my doing with nominations? Give me the award. Not nominations.” This was how I said it sarcastically; I was just saying it after reading her Wikipedia. So I continued to make these comments sarcastically. I never knew that what I was refusing would come to me.
Like I said before, the nomination of Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird HUMBLED ME! It is just a nomination not an actual award. It was a lesson for me that I was not in control. After making those sarcastic comments about the nominations of Chante Moore songs; I went about my day’s activities. Within one month, my book was nominated for Readers Choice Awards.
When I read the congratulatory message from the company I was dumbfounded. At that moment everything I said about Chante Moore started resurfacing. If it was to be a movie; we would see the flashback…and I had a flashback in my own case. I felt so TIRED! Because I did not expect it and the nomination I rejected sarcastically came to me. So it is really a lesson for me.

Reviews for Cindy And Her Beautiful Bird
“This book is a really great book for children. Unlike other books which show us the children happy and playful. It showed that Cindy had an unwavering faith in the quest to find her little bird who went missing. It’s easy to read and short. It was a wonderful read.” Yinka Odufote, Nigeria
“My son and I read this book. As we read it, he really enjoyed the imagery. He tried to guess what was next, enjoying the surprise as well as how happy the bird made her. From my point of view, it was charming to read about her story. It’s refreshing to encompass the child’s nature so accurately. My son was just as charmed as I was at the cute story and the descriptions were vivid. Wonderful read! I look forward to reading more by this author!” Camille De Mott, USA

“Cindy and her beautiful bird” is certainly a book to remember. It emulates and emphasizes the relationship and connection that can be established between children and pets.” Mariam Owoade, Nigeria
