Bird and Bear and the Special Day

by Ann James

Bird and Bear are the best of friends.

When Bird takes Bear to the park for a very special day, there are so many things to do and see. They discover high and low, short and tall, and even big and small.

But will Bear remember that it is Bird’s birthday?

This early learning picture book looks at opposites, shadow play, and friendship.
