Throughout this book, the reader can see the early morning adventure the bird goes through in order to get breakfast. Many descriptive words are used in this book such as; under, over, above, across, and through. This book can be used in the younger grades and can be used as an activity that involves the students to describe an adventure they went on and what it took to get there. ( )

This book is centered more towards the early childhood ed with simple pictures and a straight forward story line. This book can be used for different sight word study along with allowing the students to create their own ideas regarding each page as the bird moves along its day. These inferences can help with the students overall understanding of the different words and storyline within the book. ( )

This is a great book for beginning readers. Some of the words I felt were a little more difficult for this reading level, but I feel that a slight challenge is good for the readers. I love the illustrations in this book with all of the bright colors to help the child as they read. I like how the print moves along with the pictures and becomes apart of the illustrations. For example, The word 'through" has a flower as the letter O, because the bird is going through the flowerbed. I also like how the story tells a little information about birds. Over all I thought this book was very cute and a good story. ( )

Early bird by Troni Yuly is a picture book for young readers. It is about a young bird that gets up early to go and find breakfast. It shows in easy terms for a young child to understand, with mainly pictures and easy text what the early bird does to go and find breakfast. The early bird travels across, through, under, up, around and over things to finally find breakfast. In the story though the early bird also finds a friend on the way to share it with.

I think that this story is great for beginning readers. The pictures with the text make it easy for a young child to understand and be able to read the story. It is simple, and to the point. The colors are bright and lively.

One extension you can do with this book is to have the children explain what they might have done to get to the garden for the food. Have them explain what action they would have done and use that action word such as jump, or ran. Another extension idea that you can use this book for is having them share something with one of the other students and that would show them sharing techniques.
