Back of Book:
Wordy Birdy LOVES to talk. “Hello, sunrise. Hello, pink sky. Hello, orange sky. . . .” But does she love to listen? NOPE. One day, while she’s walking through the forest, her gift of the gab gets her into hot water: “That’s a pretty tree and that’s a pretty tree and that’s a pretty danger sign and that’s a pretty tree. . . .” Will this inattentive bird walk right into danger? Will her faraway thoughts lead her along a path of doom? It’s up to her long-suffering, heard-it-all-before pals Squirrel, Raccoon, and Rabbit to save their distracted friend.
My Review:
I love that there are several new picture books coming out about the importance of listening. I think that it is a very important skill that children need to learn. Tammi Sauer took this idea and created a humorous picture book that all readers can relate to. The love that when the characters in the story are talking, they are given thought bubbles so readers can distinguish between the narration, and the character speech. The story itself is fun and silly but, still holds an important message to readers. While it can be fun to talk, it is important to take the time to listen as well. The illustrations are fun and colorful. I look forward to reading more Wordy Birdy stories in the future.
