Where Birdie Lives

Clever. Jan. 2019. 14p. Board $10.99. ISBN 9781948418003.
PreS– A dog follows a bird, trying to learn where it lives, in this straightforward board book. On the dog’s search for Birdie’s home, the pup discovers other animals, such as a snail under a leaf, a fish under a lily pad, and a mole in a burrow, until finally discovering Birdie in a nest in a tree. The book concludes with the dog wishing Birdie goodnight as both go to sleep—Birdie in its nest and the dog in a house nearby. Although simple and not particularly inventive in concept, this book is still lively, fun, and entertaining and will appeal to young children. Featuring sturdy board book pages and flaps, the story encourages curious readers to interact and explore while reading. The text is peppy and concise, making for an engaging read-aloud. The illustrations are likewise bold and bright, appropriately matching the energy of the text.
VERDICT Sprightly and interactive, this book will engage young readers, who will enjoy flipping the flaps and looking for Birdie’s home. Recommended
