A Funny Little Bird by Jennifer Yerkes is a great picture book to promote themes of identity, self-esteem and growth mindset. Translated from French.
A lonely, invisible bird attempts to attract friends by covering itself with coloured flowers and feathers to make himself more beautiful. “He became very proud. So proud that he began to show off.” 

The little bird’s new plumage attracts a fox’s attention. It chases the bird it loses its decorations, and pride, and is invisible once more. The little bird decides being camouflaged is an asset and helps other animals stay safe from the fox, making friends along the way.
