Little Bird Lost

Little Bird Lost

Patricia Hegarty
Stripes Publishing
ISBN: 9781788951173

When Little Bird finds himself hurt and alone in the forest, he call out for help and Deer quickly comes to his aid. After a discussion with the forest animals, the two set off to follow the sun in order to find Bird's flock.

A charming story of friendship, adversity and adventure through the seasons. The rich, lyrical language and stunning illustrations show not just a journey through the wilderness, but a journey of a growing friendship and support, with Bird and Deer both helping each other. They become so engrossed in their adventure together, discovering the wonders (and dangers) around them, that neither notice when Bird could have continued on his own.

Seasons, forest creatures, animal homes and migration are all touched upon within the story, inspiring curious young minds to find out more about Bird's interrupted journeys through the environment Deer calls home.

One of the With Colour Illustrations series from Stripes, this is perfect for young readers setting off on their own independent reading journey. The format also means older children needing an easier read can pick these up too.

96 pages / Ages 5-7 years / Reviewed by Nicola Cleveland, school librarian
