I enjoyed the illustrations, they remind me of the stop motion animation in Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer The dad bird wearing a tie made me laugh Overall the story itself is pretty forgettable. Little Bird can talk a mile a minute which gets on the nerves of his friends and family When he spends some time with himself in the forest, his loved ones miss him and try to find him to fill the silence in his absence Kind words bring Little Bird out of his hiding place and make for a happy ending.The story was okay, but the artwork was a real treat Little Bird and his friends are made from felt sculptures and photographed in diorama like settings PreK 2. This Charming Tale Of A Loquacious Young Bird Will Resonate With Kids Full Of Questions And Exasperated Parents Alike Little Bird Leaves Family And Friends In Search Of Someone Who Will Listen Guess Who He Finds His Own Reflection A Reunion Ensues When Little Bird S Loved Ones Realize They Miss His Chatter This is an adorable little book about a small, young bird who wants to show and tell every member of his family everything he encounters throughout the day, but they are too busy to notice him This book has cute, simple illustrations that are sure to delight young children The story has a good morale behind it about appreciating those around you and the author made it simple enough for very early readers and listeners to benefit from I read this book with my twin toddlers and they greatly enjoyed it enough that they wanted to hear it a second time I think this s a good choice in reading material for young children and would recommend it to other parents and grandparents This review is based on a complimentary copy from the publisher All opinions are my own. Do you know a little one who has lots and lots of stories, jokes, and questions for you This might just be the book for them, and you I was drawn to the cute little felt stuffed animal illustrations style but close up the uneven stitching detracted from the cuteness factor Seems like a lot of text for size of book, story line, and intended audience. I really like the illustrations in this book The story is okay, but I don t like that the littlest one is shushed all the time Yes, the others in the story realize in the end how much Little Bird contributes to the community as a whole, but still.Okay for toddler and preschool storytimes. I love the art work in this book The felted animals are adorable and the story is special too. Most kids have identified with Little Bird at some point They ll especially appreciate this story. Felt animals tell this story of a little bird who is very chatty.
