Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

From the creator of Miss Spider (Little Miss Spider, Miss Spider's New Car, Miss Spider's Tea Party, etc.) comes a new series featuring a sweet little bird. On the verge of independence, little bird, Biddle bird takes the plunge out of the nest and into the world to find a snack. But what's good to eat? Something squashy and salty like a slug? Something crunchy and sweet like a pea pod? "Is a flower a good meal? Will a bug be a treat? Don't gobble up tidbits you find in the street!"

From a protective distance, the proud mommy bird watches as her baby begins to pull a meal together for the first time. Readers get the feeling she will be there in a flash if her little bird ventures into the danger zone--for example, when he remembers never to choose meals "that are bigger than you!" But meanwhile, she's content to observe her "dear little big Biddle bird." Young readers will vicariously feel little bird's sense of accomplishment, especially as they begin exploring their own new horizons. David Kirk's shiny, in-your-face illustrations burst off the page, familiar to fans of Miss Spider, but almost too overwhelming for those who prefer kinder, gentler images. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

"Little bird, Biddle bird,/ Time for your snack./ But Mommy is busy/ And hasn't come back." Little Bird, Biddle Bird is the first book in a new series from David Kirk, creator of Miss Spider. His trademark illustrations add dimension to the diminutive hero and play up the menacing look of a devilish cat, as Biddle bird searches for food and finds it. The small paper-over-board format and bright illustrations are just right for little hands.

I was delighted to see David Kirk's new book, "Little Bird, Biddle Bird". The colors are wonderful and the message so comforting, "it's ok to get bigger, momma is there for you". I loved it and know Zak will also. I look forward to more books in this series.

Format: Hardcover
A book which is thoroughly enjoyed by our 14 mo. old. The vivid pictures, rhyming text and simple yet sweet story all combine into a winning mix. Just a couple of lines of text every other page make this an easy read for toddlers with a short attention span. This book never sits on the bookshelf. It is the first book she reaches for in the morning and the last one read at night. We are looking forward to reading more about the adventures of Little Bird, Biddle Bird. Strongly recommended.

I bought this book for my 17 month old daughter who absolutely loves David Kirk's other books, particularly Little Miss Spider and Miss Spider's Tea Party board book. I had a hard time getting her to let go of the book long enough to read her the story because she was entranced by the illustrations. The coated pages also make this book more durable than other hardcover books. We look forward to upcoming books in this new series

I had purchased this book for my granddaughter a few years ago. It quickly became her favorite book. She took it to daycare to share with her friends. Someone spilled juice all over the book. All the pages stuck together. She was heart broken. She called me to ask if I could get her another book. There was Amazon to save the day. The book was in excellent condition and I have one happy granddaughter. Thank you. Joanne

We picked this book up at a tag sale when my [...] was about 5 months old. It's her all time favorite book and she wants to read it constantly, over and over again. Between my husband, [...] daughter, and me, we each read it to her 3-5 times a day unless we hide it! It's falling apart, we don't need to look at the text anymore when we read it. Of all the books that she loves like this it's one of our favorites, too. It's a sweet simple story about those first steps children take towards independence, even when mama is close by. The illustrations are beautiful with vivid colors.

I bought this book for my 19 month old because in the past I have bought other David Kirk books for my older children. My toddler loves this book. The illustations are beautiful- in true David Kirk form. The colors are vivid and I am finding that I can also teach her colors when we read it. The story is very sweet...it features a little bird and it's Mommy. The story sort of reminds me of an "old fashion" story book, which is refreshing for me so I enjoy reading it to her again and again.

My son has enjoyed this book since he was one and is now 2 1/2. It is the first book he requests at night. It's message of independence, but security, should be an inspiration to other children's authors. It also has a bit of humour and the shiny, colorful pages are made of a material hard to tear - every aspect very well thought out. It will be hard for the rest of the series to live up to this one.
