Reader's Thoughts

Jazzmarie Vedrine

This book was very much poetic in telling a story about a mother bird finding food out in the country-side for her newly hatched, young birds. In her journey, the story unfolds to tell stories of other animals looking for food too. The illustration is creative and the soft watercolors warms the reader into reading more. Each page counts and introduces a new creature, and there is a folded flap with more of the story to share. This books is so creatively put together that you could easily miss mother bird in flight or amongst the animals on each page. CREATIVE EXPERIENCES:This book could be used in a variety of ways. It is first a counting book, along with learning about animals, insects and bugs found in a forest. But I would use it to point out some of the patterns found in the illustrations of each page. If my lesson was on shapes and patterns, this book would help in reinforcing this lesson by allowing 2 to 4 years old, in finding shapes and patterns such as, circles, spirals, curvy lines, crisscrossed lines, stripes, spots, in the story or found on the creatures or insects.
