Book Description

Four birds gather together in search of food. They sing here and there begging for food, but no one seems to care about them. That is, until a rich man gives them sage advice on where they can find food. Are they going to find it together or will they go their separate ways?

4.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous Illustrations! 31 Jan. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Four hungry birds set out together in search of food. Though of different species, their combined voices garner a lot of attention. No-one, however, rewards them with the food they are singing for. On their rounds they visit the house of a rich man who, although he has no suitable food to give them, offers them directions to find a man with a straw hat who will provide for them. Their next port of call is the house of a poor man, with a straw hat, who turns out not to be the one they are seeking, and who has nothing to offer them either. At this point one of the birds leaves the quartet thinking he will do better by himself. The others travel on. At different points two others go their separate ways leaving the last bird to carry on the mission alone.
The simple, beautiful illustrations drew me to this book and the story reminded of some of those I had read as a child. The descriptions of the birds and their voices are quite charming, and I am sure will enthral many a bird-loving child. There are both facts and lessons to be learnt here, all of which are meaningful and easy to understand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Beautifully illustrated - A Touching Tale for All Ages 20 Dec. 2012
By Bev Seabrook - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This wise little story will appeal to children of all ages.

The tale conveys the importance of hope, persistence and inner strength needed to overcome life's challenges. There are other valuable lessons gently interwoven into the story. The colorful illustrations are exquisite, describing in detail the trials and adventures of four birds in their quest for food and happiness. You can read this to a child in one reading session. I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great illustrations ! 24 Dec. 2012

This children's book has REALLY great illustrations.
They attracted me immediately wanting to read the book myself at once before reading it with my son ;-)

By the way, he likes the book very much.
He currently is too young to understand all the lessons within the tale but I am sure he will retain some valuable messages.
Often, before going to bed, he wants me to read out the story.

Highly recommended!
