***** Winner of the 2016 Readers' Favorite Silver Book Award *****
One of the baby birds seems to be missing. His greedy siblings have pushed him out of view! A tale of sibling rivalry and their parents love for ALL their offspring.
The series of high-quality photographs accompanied by the simple rhyming tale provide a rare opportunity of a 'birds-eye' view into the nest. The reading content is aimed at 3-5 year-olds, but the photographs and the story that they tell will fascinate all age groups. The length and content make it a perfect bedtime story, a great start for beginner readers and a superb study of real-life nature and family life that demonstrates how care and compassion persists amongst even the tiniest of creatures.
Steve spotted this family of swallows in the eaves of a small bakery in south-west France and this delightful story unfolded as he photographed them. Kate added the words in rhyming couplets and created the book and educational resources. Little Bird Lost is one of those children's picture books that both educates and entertains. It can be used to promote discussion on bullying, greed and sharing fairly as well as with simple number work and directions.
This book was inspired by the birds themselves and by a chapter in Spontaneous Evolution by Bruce Lipton about Darwin's theory of the survival of the fittest. Available in paperback and kindle books. The Lexile measure is 380.
