Description:

Simple text and beautiful illustrations follow a baby bird through the seasons in this sweet tale now available as Classic Board Book.

 

From birth, to first flight, to a new friend, the first year of a bird’s life is full of activity and wonder. Artist Jorey Hurley pairs vivid, crisp artwork with simple, minimal text—often just one word per spread—to create a breathtaking, peaceful chronicle of nature and life’s milestones.

 

This book is now available as a Classic Board Book, perfect for young readers.

 

 

My View:

Simplistic in design but very effective use of a single word and illustration per page to convey a story – there are endless possibilities for the conversations/stories this book will allow you to conjure up when reading to your baby/toddler.

 

Colours, seasons, families, movement, emotions…a simple word says so much.

 

PS

Love a cardboard/hard board children’s book! So practical.

  1. I love that you’re finding all of these wonderful books for kids, Carol. And this one sounds like it manages to tell a good story at the same time as it’s helping little ones get a sense of language and reading.
