Customer reviews


'Colourful and easy to read, this story is great for children starting to learn how to read and also for younger ones learning different types of birds - penguins, parrots, owls. The story is big and bold with a simple layout which really makes it very accessible for younger readers. Personally, I really enjoyed how simple it was, as my children were caught up in the actions with less focus on a narrative, which made a nice change for our reading activity. This story is brilliant for day time reading when you want to engage your child in the actions and play together.' School Zone

'“[…] a perfect read-aloud book!”' Baby Book Babbles
