Perfect Picture Book Friday
Wordy Birdy (Doubleday Books for Young Readers, 2018) by Tammi Sauer and illustrated by Dave Mottram is a funny picture book. And it reminds me so much of one of my daughters when she was three because she didn’t stop talking!
Wordy Birdy doesn’t know she has a problem. Her problem is not listening because she’s too busy talking. But an almost disaster makes her aware of how she needs to listen, and in the end she finds she likes to listen. Don’t miss reading the end flaps and see who else is excited to be in the book…
This book has been put on many “Best Book” lists that you can see on the author’s site. Tammi is a well-published picture book author (as well as a very nice lady). You can see all her books here.
I love Dave Motram’s illustrations and sense of humor. I liked his about page, too! You can see other samples of his work here.
And there’s a sequel coming out in February!
I love the expression on the cougar’s face and can’t wait to see what is in store for us in Wordy Birdy Meets Mr. CougarPants. The title alone makes me smile.
