Grownups who like to share stories with their children often notice that the children love it when they are included in the story, or when they are given the opportunity to add a little something of their own to the tale. There is a something magical about interactive stories.

In this delightful novelty book children will meet a little bird who has a charming adventure finding a new home, making a new friend, and having a family. Throughout the narrative young readers are given the chance to help tell the story. Every spread includes at least one removable cardboard character or piece of scenery, which children can move from one page and place in another.

As the story unfolds, children will love putting the little bird characters in trees, building a nest, helping eggs to hatch, and more.

This is the kind of title that will truly show young children how magical storytelling can be.
