Description

 

Bird is back — in a fun board book edition!

Bird and Raccoon are playing ball when Bird gets bonked on the head. "Boo hoo hoo!" he cries. What will make Bird feel better? A kiss? A cookie? A Band-Aid? Bird's friends Raccoon, Rabbit, Beaver, Sheep and Fox are full of sweet and funny ideas.

Perfectly pitched and hilariously imagined, this charming story about a universal experience will put a smile on the face of every child who has suffered a boo-boo and every parent who has struggled to come up with just the right way to give comfort.

Excerpt

"What you need is a cookie!" said Beaver. "You can fix any problem with a cookie."

Beaver gave Bird a cookie.

Bird cried louder, "I think I'm getting dizzy.""Let's ask Sheep what to do," said Beaver. "She's full of ideas."
