A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins

"Can you imagine ... just for one day ... you're a busy bird? Yes, a bird! Hooray!"

Flap, hop, peck and sing along with lots of busy birds in A Busy Day for Birds, the brand new action rhyme story by Lucy Cousins, creator of Maisy.  Can you stand on one leg like a flamingo or waddle like a penguin? How about say "cock-a-doodle-doo!", "tuwit-tuwoo" and even "tra-la-la"? What a busy day you will have! Beautifully illustrated with bold, bright colours and packed with all sorts of wild and wonderful birds, this bouncy read-aloud is perfect for little ones aged 2+.

We went behind the scenes with author-illustrator Lucy Cousins and found out all about the making of the book in this video…

“Enormous fun, a joyful celebration of birds and indeed life.” Fiona Noble, The Bookseller
