In honor of my oldest daughter Isabela's birthday this month I share with you the Lion and the Little Red Bird. I remember pushing Isabela in her stroller from our home to our library one hot summer day. I can vividly picture Isabela at 7 months old holding onto this book tightly against her chest the whole stroll home. (The book almost half her size) I should have seen it then that her love of books was real even at this young age. Isabela turns five on the last day of this month and as I have seen these first five years fly past I really can't wait to see what this amazing girl will do with all the years of her life!
"The bird sang while the lion painted. She sang a song without any questions, full of color and joy. The lion had never heard anything so unusual and so pretty. Just listening made him happy."
This book has beautiful illustrations and a great message. Teach your children about colors and animals with this book and teach them one of the most important lessons of life; friendships without prejudices. A lesson worth learning.
Happy Birthday Month Reading!
