好忙的鸟儿 A Busy Day For Birds
Imagine that you’re a bird,
a really busy bird!
What would you do?
What sound would you make?
What adventures would you have?
This is a really fun and interactive book that captivates kids!
I’ve read this lovely book many times in group settings
for kids from ages 1 to 10,
and at home with my own kids.
I personally enjoy it myself too (:
What we love about this book
- Bright and colourful illustrations on clean background so it really POPS
- Interesting endsheets (paper sheets affixed to the inside of the book's front cover and endcover) - kids love looking through the different birds and noticing how the birds are awake or asleep
- Introduces the actions that birds may do! Very fun to mimic them, gets kids active while reading
- Covers common birds that kids can recognise and usually like, eg parrot, swan, flamingo, penguin, ostrich
- Topic is relatable! Birds are commonly seen in most places, and usually kids like to observe or chase them
- There's a sweet page where a baby bird snuggles with mama bird in their nest (:
- The book is slightly larger than usual, easy to read even from a distance away!
- Montessori-friendly title
- Is a great book to read on the topics of nature, birds, animals and more!
