Synopsis

Watch the Birdie! by Nancy Cote

Mousey was watching a baby bird when it fell from its nest. The baby bird is okay, but she can't fly yet! So how will she get back up the tree to safety? Mousey may be too small to get the baby bird back up by himself, but maybe he can find somebody else who can! Maybe a frog can jump high enough. Or maybe a bunny can hop far enough. Maybe a snail will be able to crawl his way up the tree ...Will Mousey be able to save the baby bird? Or will the hungry cat get in the way of Mousey's valiant attempts? Sometimes it's just the size of your heart that really counts. Watch the Birdie! is a delightful storybook about bravery and friendship. Nancy Cote's loyal little mouse is sure to capture the hearts of young readers everywhere. With adorable illustrations and silly narration, Cote has made Watch the Birdie! a truly fun read for all. For children ages 3 to 6, this is a fun follow up to Nancy Cote's Watch the Cookie! (Sky Pony Press, October 2014). It is the perfect story time book as it teaches kids the value of being a good friend, helping others, and asking for help when you need it. Sky Pony Press, with our Good Books, Racehorse and Arcade imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of books for young readers--picture books for small children, chapter books, books for middle grade readers, and novels for young adults. Our list includes bestsellers for children who love to play Minecraft; stories told with LEGO bricks; books that teach lessons about tolerance, patience, and the environment, and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.

Reviews

The use of various fonts and text placement works well with Cote's story and her dynamic, bright, bold, and humorous illustrations... This is a sweet additional purchase that touts courage in the face of adversity and the importance of friendship. Budding readers will appreciate the simple wording of the patterned text. --School Library Journal

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
