This is the first book I ever read by myself and so it is my favorite book. The story is about a little bird that falls out of its nest and it goes on an adventure in hoping to find it's mother, but along the way it meets a harmless cast of characters that firmly tell the baby bird that they are not it's mother. Baby bird finally reunites with his mother and all is well.

An owl doesn't have a lot of choices for friends to play with at night since most of the other animals are asleep. The firefly who does want to play has a mischievous streak that shows he still has some life lessons to learn.

The plot turns are silly and ridiculous at times, but it's still a fun little book to share with a child.

FOR REFERENCE:

#1448 in our old book database. Rated "Good" by Rod and Adelia.

Ted and Fred are opposites in many ways, but are still best of friends. After belaboring their differences for most of the book a silly little problem is introduced at the end regarding restless sleep but is quickly resolved

Huh? So?

This just doesn't have the charm or energy or purpose of Eastman's better books.

A goofy way for youngsters to learn about size, colors, opposites and counting. It's so random, but so fun too.
