A curious little country bird longs to see the bright lights, big city. But is he ready for the hustle and bustle?

Little bird is curious to fly beyond the boundaries of his little forest. Though his mother warns him to stay with his
friends, Little Bird takes off on his own, looking for adventure. When he arrives in the city he doesn't know what to make of all the noises and the commotion. Before long he's feeling frightened and homesick. Luckily for him, his
friends had been checking up on him the whole time. This adorable book shows the universal pull children
feel to go off on their own, even as they long to stay tethered to home.

Praise For Little Bird Visits the Big City

"An original story for those who are ready to strike out on their own as well as for those who are still thinking about it, Little Bird Visits the Big City would make a thoughtful storytime read at home and in the classroom, and a terrific addition to public library collections." -- Celebrate Picture Books

"Kids (the ones who will identify with animal characters and look for themselves in picture book stories) are born in their own "packages", hard-wired with widely-varied levels of sensory responses, anxiety, adventuresome drives, and other personality patterns. This Little Bird has a drive to discover, revealed on the opening page and continuing on to the end, even after some rethinking of his plans is called for.” -- Unpacking the Power of Picture Books

“The bold colors, geometric shapes, and stylized characters and scenery are appealing, as is the theme of a young bird who is curious about the big city he can see from his home in the woods. . . . may appeal to readers who loved The Runaway Bunny or Love You Forever.” -- Youth Services Book Review
