"Little Bird, Little Bird, It's Time For Bed" by Adam Lewis Provides Plenty of Teachable Moments for Kids

Little Bird, Little Bird, It’s Time for Bed follows the story of several friends who are looking for their friend, Little Bird. It seems it’s bedtime and Little Bird is nowhere to be found. Where could she be?

This book is not only adorable, it provides some important teachable moments. The author has found a clever way to open the doors of communication with this book. I love books that can be used as a jumping off point to having meaningful discussions with children and this book has done just that.

As we follow the growing number of concerned friends, adults can instill the concept of caring and concern for others. Children can interact with the storytelling by being asked to offer their own guesses as to where Little Bird might be, thus introducing problem-solving skills. Teamwork is also a key element in this book. These are all valuable things we want our children to learn.

The illustrations are vividly colorful and attention getting. They’re sure to hold the attention of even the youngest child.

I love that the author has dedicated this book to his own children. It’s a lovely way to begin a children’s book and shows that, as a parent, he takes care to create books that children will enjoy. I would highly recommend this sweet little book!
