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 * "Beautifully illustrated with bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of wild and wonderful birds [...] the perfect read-aloud book to be enjoyed by young and old [...]" * Surrey Advertiser * "Best-selling Lucy Cousins`s boldly drawn birds inspire the imagination as she illustrates the wonderful things that different kinds of birds can do. Lively, colourful birds fill each page beautifully as she illustrates them flying, hopping, pecking, swooping, singing and running in a charming book that leads perfectly to bedtime." - February 2017 Book of the Month * LoveReading, Julia Eccleshare * "[...] a picture book aviary of brilliantly painted plumage. Full of funny instructions ("Say `Hello, darling!' Then swoop like a starling"), it's a riotous, interactive, zingingly colourful book - perfect to share with the very young." * The Guardian * "This fantastically bold book will have little ones jumping, flapping, swooping and singing along as they learn all about these beautiful feathered friends." * Little London * "A bouncy read-aloud book to be enjoyed; beautifully illustrated with bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of wild and wonderful birds." * Gift Focus * "This fantastically bold book will have little ones jumping, flapping, swooping and singing along as they learn all about these beautiful feathered friends." * LittleLondonMagazine.co.uk * "[...] a real joy, popping with colour and energy, an irresistible read-aloud rhyme." * The Bookseller * "A joyful whirlwind of a book about birds of all shapes and sizes which begs to be shared with young eyes. The jaunty rhyming text is brought vividly alive by the outstanding illustrations which zing with delicious colour." * Independent online, Ireland * "All in all, there are some busy little birds in this bright and colourful book, but there's always time for a cuddle with mum before bed." * Reading Corner, So Magazines *
