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!

Lucky the Lorikeet

By Monica Engebretson
Illustrated by Melodee Strong

Written in 2004 and inspired by real events that took place in 2003 (see the real Lucky), the book tells the story of Lucky, a parrot who is captured in the wild and eventually regains his freedom with the help of a young boy. The story helps encourage children to be kind to animals without being didactic and gently awakens readers to the plight of captive birds.

Bluebirds are a sign of spring

Warm weather and gentle south breezes they bring
