Which bird will be your favourite in this delightful tale, Have You Heard, Little Bird? by Ingrid Sawubona? Will it be the bird that is as light as a kite or the one with the big long tail? There are birds of all shapes and sizes that live in all different kinds of places. Some in trees in forests and others in the jungle. What kind of birds live near you? Do you see different birds flying in the sky above your head? White ones or black ones with big feathers. This is the perfect story that will encourage your child to read along with the simple rhyming composition. The illustrations will give a fantastic focus to your own local birds, and are a great conversation aid to the story.

Have You Heard, Little Bird? by Ingrid Sawubona is a delightfully well-written story that is a perfect bedtime read for small children. It has a great message behind the story, which is that everything in nature is different; there are different birds from different places in the world. But each bird has their own skill and although they may look different and act differently, they each have their own unique purpose in the world. The illustrations are perfect for the story and the age group of the child reader. A great story that children can read along with and remember because of the cleverly constructed rhyming format. A perfect addition to any child's bookcase and I would especially recommend it for schools where a lesson in acceptance of others could be taught to youngsters.
