Little Bird Lost by Steve and Kate
Larkinson is the story of four little birds (baby swallows), discovered by
Steve in the eaves of a bakery in south-west France. One of the little birds
seems to have disappeared. Is he safe? Has he fallen out the nest? Can he be
rescued? Do his parents know where he is? This delightful story in photographs
(by Steve) and rhyming couplets (by Kate) will absolutely enchant readers aged
3-5, but actually, adults will also just love this little tale from the world
of nature. What I especially enjoyed about this book is the beautiful photographs.
I love children’s illustrations but the unique angle of actual images really
struck me. Not only are they absolutely first-class and clear, but it is the perfect
way to teach young readers about the real world of birds.
Children are generally
interested in animals and wildlife, and parents and relatives could use this
delightful book as a springboard to other books involving wildlife. This is a
great book for bedtime reading, and I would also encourage children’s libraries
to include a copy. Children will enjoy the images as well as the captivating
story. What a lovely start to getting your child interested in reading! As an
added bonus, there is a delightful little cartoon book video on YouTube to
really round off an enchanting reading experience.
