Overview

This Story is Told in Pictures… so children 3 to 6 can “read” the pictures and enjoy the story.

Waking up early one morning, Early Birdy watches Mother Birdy catch a worm. Inspired, Early Birdy wants to catch one too. But catching a worm isn’t as easy as it looks. Join Early Birdy on an exciting and funny adventure set in a beautiful springtime forest environment created by illustrator Bill Bolton. Don’t be surprised to find yourself “smiling from ear to ear”. Don’t for one minute think you’re going to “read” (aka narrate) this story to your child because you’re the adult and your child is, well, the child. Your child can “read” the pictures as well as you can. A fact that changes how this story will be read: this is a story you and your child can read together. You might start the collaboration by asking a question: You: What do you see in this picture? Child: A little baby birdy is waking up You: And in the next picture? Child: A big bird is catching a worm. You: Meanwhile back in the nest? Child: The little birdy is watching. Child: He wants to catch a worm, too. He flies down. Child: He sees a worm. Child: He bites it. Child: And then uh oh! That’s not a worm! See what just happened? you and your child were reading the book together, until your child got much too excited to wait for you to ask a question. Suddenly your preschooler is telling the story as fast as she can turn the pages. And you’re thinking, “Wait a minute! My 3-year-old doesn’t know how to read. But she’s so excited—I can’t stop her from telling the story. She’s running away with the story. What happened to our quiet little game of question and answer?”

Editorial Reviews

Terry Doherty
Fans of P.D. Eastman's Are You My Mother? and Hug by Jez Alborough will adore Early Birdy Gets the Worm.
Penny Warner
My preschool-age grandchildren thoroughly enjoyed ‘reading’ the book! And I enjoyed hearing them each tell the story in their own words.
Danny Brassel
You’ll love sharing this book with your preschooler. Because the story is told in pictures, reading it together is a lot more fun than you ever imagined.
Chase Young
Bruce Lansky’s wordless picture book is a smart way to prepare children for reading. It can help build their capacity for reading comprehension before they tackle phonics and try to read words.
Tim Rasinski
Beginning and struggling readers may think they’re reading this book, but you’ll know they’re ‘reading’ the pictures and loving it.
Nancy Kerr
Wow, I’m smiling from ear to ear! I never knew wordless picture books could be so engaging!
