Little bird by Germano Zullo; illustrated by Albertine (2012)

[Published by Enchanted Lion Books]


Speed review number 3

Little bird is sweet and thoughtful and worth luxuriating over. The text is minimal, the message is not.

A man drives his truck to the edge of the cliff and opens the backdoor. A multi-coloured flock of birds soars off into the air. Left behind is a small blackbird.

“One could believe that one day is just like another. But some have something a little more. Nothing much. Just a small thing.” The man and bird share lunch and a little bit later, they share something amazing.

I would love to try this out on a slightly older school audience to see what they make of this beautiful IMG_1542story.

Check out Little bird at Auckland Libraries.

Or buy Little bird from Fishpond.
