I loved this book for two reasons. First, the illustrations were a perfect fit for the written text. In the story, the baby bird is portrayed as innocent and helpless, and the drawing of the baby bird is a great representation of that because he looks very small in comparison to things around him, and the frog is pictured helping baby bird and leading the way throughout the story. The illustrations are generally appealing to the eye as they are full of color, and fitting to the mood of the story. The second reason I loved this book is because it broadens the reader’s perspectives; this is especially significant because the book is meant for children around kindergarten age. In the story, the frog initially views the baby bird as a stranger, yet he willingly lends a helping hand when he notices the baby bird seems troubled. Together, the frog and the baby bird come up with their own solution and build a nest, something neither of them had ever tried before. The big idea that I got out of this book, is to teach children about teamwork, innovation, and even adventure (Baby bird says, “Mama, I’ve had the most wonderful adventure!” when he finally returns to his home.)

Summary: Another very cute and simple book by Frank Asch. These are wonderful books to read over and over again. This book is about Baby Bird and how he falls out of the Nest. Mama Bird does not know that Baby Bird fell out and Baby Bird is too weak to fly back into the nest. Baby Bird meets Little Frog and discovers that Baby Bird can do more than he thought. Response: A great book for kids when they think they can't do something. Connection: Read Aloud/Talk about how it is still important to try something even if you think you can't do it because you may surprise yourself. ( )
