School Library Journal - School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 1 Little Bird has fallen out of his nest and is searching for another home. He encounters Snail, Puppy, Pony, and a girl, each of whom offer him unreachable alternatives, and Cat, who almost eats him. This threat causes Little Bird suddenly to develop the ability to fly back to his nest. Attractive watercolor paintings accompany this simple story, originally published in England. Children must move a cardboard cat cut-out (six are provided) from page to page to advance the story and provide suspense, and this toy book will not hold up under repeated library circulation. This is a sorry plot to encourage more active involvement at story time; providing more engaging stories than this will guarantee participation. Ellen Fader, Westport Public Library, Conn.
