Little Home Bird
Publisher: Child’s Play
Little Bird was happy. He loved the view from his favourite branch, the berries hanging from the tree and the music in the wind. But one day, everything changed.
The skies grew dark and the wind blew cold. Little Bird's brother told him it was time to fly to their other home. Feeling sad, Little Bird packed up his favourite things, but he lost them all on the long flight south.
Many days later, the flock arrived in Africa, where the wind blew warm. Little Bird soon found some new favourite things, and found he could be happy in both his homes.
A gentle and enchanting story, with stunning illustrations. It captures the uncertainty felt by Little Bird: forced to live in different places. A reassuring story for all children who have more than one home.
