Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 1—While the mosaic birds in Spink's debut picture book waddle, hop, and pop (when they eat too many worms), they look out at readers with wide-eyed stares. Their feathers are replaced with intricate patterns, but their colors hint at their identity. The red, white, and black bird that is rat-a-tat-tatting a hole in a tree is a woodpecker, and the large blue bird with the white head is an eagle. The rest of them could be wild songbirds, pet birds, or ducks, but the one thing they have in common with humans is revealed at the back of the book, and it will resonate with all readers. VERDICT Storytime audiences will be encouraged to guess the rhyming words and imitate the actions of the birds; an engaging addition.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

Review

"Beginning readers will enjoy the Seussian ease of the rhymes, and younger children will soon have the short text memorized... Endearing and great fun to share." 
(Kirkus)

"Storytime audiences will be encouraged to guess the rhyming words and imitate the actions of the birds; an engaging addition."
(School Library Journal)

"Spink’s colorful, bulbous birds look as if they’ve flown out of a stained-glass window in this concept book for young readers...Neutral backgrounds showcase the birds’ vibrant plumage, and the colorful text is often printed to mimic a bird’s movement or characteristic."
(Booklist)
