She’s such a wee sweetie today.

“My little nestling, time for bed.

Climb inside, you sleepyhead.

Like baby bird, your nest can be

Anywhere there’s you and me.”

A stunning array of birds then spill from the pages. From pigeons nesting on concrete ledges, to plovers IMG_1883on sandy shores, all your favourite feathered friends feature. The factual pages at the back of the book add fascinating information about all the birds featured.

The rhyming language is lovely and lyrical and the message is a special one to share with the small people in your life. Delicious.
