“It was a rainy night in the city.
Little Bird sat looking at the street below.
He watched the umbrellas bobbing up and down.
He listened to taxis honk-honk-honking.”
Little Bird isn’t a fan of rain, and in the morning he’s pleased to see the falling stuff has retreated. His hunt for an appropriate bathing spot begins. It’s harder than you would think. Other birds, balls, little girls and dogs all seem intent on competing with Little Bird for his wee sliver of watery goodness. Finally an empty fountain provides the perfect bathing spot.
Little Bird overflows with lovely descriptive language. Words like skitter, flit and trilled add to the richness of the story. A perky number for a rainy day.
