Children’s Book Extols the Value of Resilience and Self-Confidence

Bird-watching enthusiast writes book to teach readers how resilience and self-confidence can help one get through life’s struggles

San Antonio, TX, USA – WEBWIRE

It’s neither too early nor too late for anyone, young and old, to learn how to develop self-confidence and resilience.

Texas native Edward Martin Polansky published his debut children’s book titled “Oscar the Osprey: The Bird Who Was Afraid of Heights,” a contemporary fable about a young osprey with a fear of heights. In his dedication, Polansky mentioned he got the inspiration for the book during a family summer vacation in Wyoming and Colorado.
Written in the first-person point of view, “Oscar the Osprey” features the titular bird that develops a fear of heights after falling out of his nest while trying to catch a butterfly. Though his name means “fearless warrior,” Oscar isn’t one due to his phobia, which interferes with his inability to fly and survive in the wild. With dangerous animals lurking in the wild and winter approaching, Oscar must race against time to learn how to survive in spite of his handicap.
How does Oscar survive the cold and the dangers he encounters? Readers must find that out by getting themselves a copy of Polansky’s “Oscar the Osprey: The Bird Who Was Afraid of Heights” available at
