A Busy Day For Birds

A Busy Day For Birds

By Lucy Cousins
Published by Walker Books

Peck, hop, flap and make some noise in this story full of colour, rhyme and feathered friends! Another feathered gem from writer and illustrator, Lucy Cousins.

Flap your wings, fly up high, open your beak and sing in this fun action rhyme story about fantastical birds by multi-award-winning author Lucy Cousins. "Can you imagine ... just for one day ... you're a busy bird? Yes, a bird! Hooray!" Can you stand on one leg like a flamingo or waddle like a penguin? How about say "cock-a-doodle-doo!", "tuwit-tuwoo" and even "tra-la-la"? What a busy day you will have! A bouncy read-aloud book to be enjoyed; beautifully illustrated with bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of wild and wonderful birds!

This is the perfect bird introduction to a young child. The clever rhyming text throughout perfectly balances Lucy's bold and colourful illustrations. Young children will pick up on the different types of birds along with the sounds they make and their behaviours. I like how the book ends with a night owl, another excuse for reading at bedtime and turning your busy child into a bird expert!

A Busy Day For Birds is published on the 2nd February through Walker Books. To find out more about the book visit the Walker Books website here.
