Little Bird loves everything his home. It’s full of his favourite things; the food, the view, the music, it’s all just right. So when his brother tells him they’re migrating for the summer Little Bird decides his favourite things will simply have to come with him. The journey is long and tough, and he loses his precious things along the way. But his new home has wonderful things of its own and Little Bird finds that you can find new favourites after all!
Lots of white space gives Jo Empson’s painterly illustrations room to dazzle with their vibrant colours. A sweet message about learning to leave things behind might be useful for children who are moving home or schools. This gentle story might also be useful in the classroom when discussing bird migration and landscapes – there is a lot of beautiful scenery to enjoy here.
