Little Bird Lost: A Rhyming Picture Story is a children's picture book written by Kate Larkinson with photography by Steve Larkinson. High up in the corner of a building is a nest with baby birds hungrily waiting for their parents to feed them. There should be four babies in that nest, but suddenly one seems to be missing. The other birds are all sitting right there in the front of the nest, but the fourth little one is nowhere to be seen. When their mother comes with food, she wonders about the number of babies she should be feeding and is sure someone's missing, but the three babies assure her that everyone's there. Dad's not falling for their tricks though, and he searches behind them to find the little one so he can get his share of the food.
Kate Larkinson and Steve Larkinson's children's picture book, Little Bird Lost: A Rhyming Picture Story, combines a marvelous photographic series of wildlife pictures with an entertaining and educational story in rhyme. Kate Larkinson's rhymed verse works perfectly with Steve's live-action photographs. You can almost hear those hungry birds cheeping madly as they impatiently wait for food and hold their mouths wide open. There's more than entertainment and fabulous photographs, however, as Kate also introduces numbers and counting, as well as directions into the story. Little Bird Lost provides parents and teachers with an excellent way to continue the lesson by having the new readers count the birds in the nest and point out directions from one panel to the next. Little Bird Lost: A Rhyming Picture Story is most highly recommended.
