On the 4th day of Christmas: Hooray for Birds

On the fourth day of Christmas, my true love gave to me, four calling birds…and Hooray for Birds, written and illustrated by Lucy Cousins. 

Peck, hop, flap and make some noise in this story full of colour, rhyme and feathered friends!

Flap your wings, fly up high, open your beak and sing in this fun action rhyme story about fantastical birds by multi-award-winning author Lucy Cousins. 

"Can you imagine ... just for one day ... you're a busy bird? Yes, a bird! Hooray!" Can you stand on one leg like a flamingo or waddle like a penguin? How about say "cock-a-doodle-doo!", "tuwit-tuwoo" and even "tra-la-la"? What a busy day you will have! 

A bouncy read-aloud book to be enjoyed; beautifully illustrated with bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of wild and wonderful birds!
