An engagng story for younger chidren,
This review is from: Cuckoo! (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
An egg begins to vibrate and soon Cuckoo hatches and everything is fine. The other birds are near, but when Cuckoo speaks no-one can understand him. Cuckoo is different. Then Cuckoo decides to leave and he sets off on his journey to find someone who can understand him. He tried talking to other birds and animals, but still he could not be understood.
After trying to learn their languages and feeling tired he settles down to sleep when he hears in the distance......
This is a pleasant, simple story of Cuckoo. Very well illustrated in bold colours. Sentences are short and if a word is misunderstood it can easily be explained to a youngster. Children could have fun identifying and naming the colours in the drawings as well as learning the printed animal sounds.
An ideal children's book.
