Format: Hardcover
A skilled reader could have a field day with this. Lots of opportunity for dramatic silences, voices, and ascending / descending phrases.

For a parent it's fun to read. Very few words mean the pictures have to work hard to tell the story. And they do. A family is out to catch a bird in their nets. The littlest family member wants to talk to the bird but is always shhed while the bigger family members use nets, ladders and other tools... but still can't catch him. Will someone succeed?

A wicked sense of humour pervades - size isn't everything. Simplicity often works best. And it's not always good to get what you wanted...

Simply but effectively (and memorably) illustrated. Very distinctive style. And excellent use of the simplest of text, that burgeoning readers will find themselves able to read.

Read it twice through to my three-year-old and we both laughed at all the mishaps and the ending.

great book. the colours are great, and its a good size. very funny story for both child and parent. my son loves to read along since each part is a pattern. i like the the surprise is always after the page flip. 1mo later, he still likes to read this very frequently.

I like reading this book but wonder if my 2 year old does so much, she gets the idea they are trying to catch a bird but too young to understand story/humour

This book is already the number one for our todler (2 years old) and even his brother (5 years old), we drag it around anywhere we go. It's fun to read as well as a parent, and the illustrations are so cute!

My 3 year old found this book fun - good for reading out loud and laughing. If its vocabulary your looking for - there aren't so many words.

Both my 3 and 5 yr old grand children - especially the 3 yr old - love this book.
He can't wait to see what the plan for squirrels is.
