A Busy Day for Birds

National Bookstart Week 2018
Celebrate the Bookstart Bird Boogie

Imagine you were a bird – what would you do?
You might peck at some tree bark, swoop like a starling or catch a fly with your beak. All in all, you’d keep pretty busy!

Appley Dapply

Appley Dapply’s Nursery Rhymes

APPLEY DAPPLY, a little brown mouse,
Goes to the cupboard in somebody’s house.

IN somebody’s cupboard
⁠There’s everything nice,
⁠Cake, cheese, jam, biscuits,
⁠—All charming for mice!

APPLEY DAPPLY has little sharp eyes,
And Appley Dapply is so fond of pies!

NOW who is this knocking
⁠at Cottontail’s door?
Tap tappit! Tap tappit!
⁠She’s heard it before?

The Tender Tale of Cinderella Penguin

Happy World Penguin Day!
Janet Perlman | 1981 | 10 min

This short animation is a zany version of the classic fairy tale, with the leading role played by a mistreated, romantic penguin, with hilarious results. Cinderella Penguin loses her magic flipper as she runs to meet her midnight deadline, but all ends well when Prince Charming finds the right webbed foot and the nasty step-family is brought to heel.
A 1981 Oscar® nominee.

by Helme Heine

Charlie Rooster, Johnny Mouse, and Percy the pig are the best of friends. They do “everything” together. They ride their bike together, play games together, and even do their chores together. Because that’s what good friends do. When night falls, though, and it’s time to go to bed, they learn that sometimes friends have to be apart. But that’s okay, because true friends always find each other, even if it’s just in their dreams.
