What did you like about the book?  Bright gouache illustrations with bold black outlines celebrate the joys of being a bird. “Can you imagine…just for one day…you’re a busy bird? Yes, a bird! Hooray!”  Readers will be delighted to pretend to be all types of birds from roosters, to woodpeckers, to swans, to penguins and so many more.  The bouncy rhyming verse is fun to read aloud: “Stand very tall on just on leg.  Say Cluck-cluck! and lay an egg.”  This is sure to be one that will have readers acting like birds!  A fun complement to Hooray for Fish!
