Boo Hoo Bird by Jeremy Tankard

5 Aug

Bird and Raccoon are playing catch when, suddenly, “BONK!” A throw goes awry and Bird is hit in the head.  He wails in pain and unhappiness as, one after one, his friends try to find a way to make him feel better: a hug?  A cookie?  A band-aid?  Nothing works, causing Bird’s friends to burst into tears as well.   Surprisingly, that’s just what makes Bird realize he’s fine, really.  Reading this book aloud provides the reader with a great opportunity to really ham it up; pretending to moan and wail.  The kids will love it (trust me, they cracked up when I did it), and the more fun we have with books, the more motivated our kids are to become readers.
