The conversations between Mommy Bird and Baby Bird are not unlike many conversations I have had with my own children. Baby Bird peppers Mommy Bird with a series of questions. Does this sound familiar to you? It sure did to me! Baby Bird asks his mommy what if questions, such as, “What if I roll in the dirt and get mud all over my face and feathers?” As you read this question, a tiny butterfly gently flaps its wings just above the words. When you press the arrow to turn the page, you read Mommy Bird’s response. Again, a butterfly gently flaps its wings. This time, the butterfly is perched on the edge of a pretty pink flower. With a tap to the water fountain where two little birds are playing, water splashes and water droplets rain over the page. Mommy Bird gently tells Baby Bird, “If you roll in the dirt and get mud all over your face and feathers, then together we will wash you clean and I will still love you.”
Children will love watching the interactive features on each page as they move through the pages of I Love You, Little Bird. Birds fly, butterflies flap their wings and water falls from the sky as you move through the book. In this unique app innovative 3D rendering brings the illustrations to life! Physics controlled objects encourage experimentation which is essential to developing motor skills. This beautiful story book will help your little one grow and develop.
As the book closes, Mommy Bird assures her baby that he is her little bird and she will always love him. On the final page, Little Bird says, “Good,” and snuggles up under Mommy Bird’s wing. Tapping the tree they sleep in sends stars floating through the sky. What a beautiful way to end this sweet story.
