A Busy Day for Birds Synopsis

Flap your wings, fly up high, open your beak and sing in this fun action rhyme story about fantastical birds by multi-award-winning author Lucy Cousins. Can you imagine ...just for one day ...you're a busy bird? Yes, a bird! Hooray! Can you stand on one leg like a flamingo or waddle like a penguin? How about say cock-a-doodle-doo! , tuwit-tuwoo and even tra-la-la ? What a busy day you will have!

A bouncy read-aloud book to be enjoyed; beautifully illustrated with bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of wild and wonderful birds!

A Busy Day for Birds Press Reviews

Every spread though is an invitation to children, not only to delight in her vibrant portraits of some feathered friends but also to create some of their own, using their bodies, with paints, crayons, collage materials, modelling clay, dough or anything else they can think of. And then, there are all the various bird sounds too. They'll most definitely relish spreading their wings and trying some swooping like these spotty fliers. Red Reading Hub
