Synopsis

Harina and the Doctor Bird by Joy R. Hartley

Harina comes home from school very excited about the passport game she was playing. She finds Mummy feeling poorly and snuggles up to her with her `Gumbi'. She thinks about her last adventure with the crested guinea fowl Hanga, her favourite bird, where she saw the Doctor Bird helping Peli, a poorly bird friend. Could Doc help Mummy? If only I could talk to him, she thinks. Then, as she drifts off into sleep there is a tapping at the window... and Harina's next adventure begins! With Hanga and Doctor Bird she visits a new country, and on returning she remembers how to help Mummy feel much better. Harina and the Doctor Bird is the second part of a series of children's books suitable for ages 3-7. They can be enjoyed by families, teachers and children on their own. The books emphasise diversity, international understanding and racial harmony as well as the joy of giving.

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.

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.
