The Word Bird

Publisher: Graffeg

Review

Beak and feather, nest and wing – what flaps and pecks and hops and sings? Why, it’s a bird of course! And what a great variety of birds there are in the world. Birds vary in size, home environment – flying out over the sea or nesting in trees, and some birds hoot at midnight with others singing at dawn.

Davies and Cameron ably depict the sheer variety of the feathered world accessibly for little ones, conveying a sense of wonder and joy.

Part of a series of rhyming non-fiction picture books ideal for 3-6s, The Word Bird joins Animal Surprises, The Secret of the Egg and Into The Blue in presenting accurate information about a variety of elements of the natural world in a fun and dynamic format.

Davies' rhymes are fun and bouncy, giving lots of interesting facts that kids are bound to remember. There's a fun little puzzle at the end, too.
