PreS-Gr 2–In this second story in the “Really Bird” series, our hero shares a blueberry pie with his two friends, Cat and Pup. Really Bird is not pleased with the piece of blueberry pie that Pup gives him. He feels he should get a bigger piece, even though Pup tells him that he got the smallest piece because he is the smallest out of the three friends. Cat also complains that his piece is messy, while Pup says his piece is “purr-fect.” Pup realizes his friends are not happy and decides to share the pie equally among them all. In the end, the friends are even able to share pie with other animals. This story shows how Really Bird and his friends handle conflict and use problem-solving to resolve their issue in a positive and fair manner. The text and illustrations align beautifully to showcase the animated interaction of the friends. The end of the book includes scenario questions for adults to discuss with children.
VERDICT This is suitable for any collection catering to emerging readers.
