Book Review/Giveaway: A Bird On My Hand. Ends Mar 23rd
About the Book: A child watches the chickadees by Grandma’s cabin and sees those eating sunflower seeds from Grandma’s hand. Will the chickadees back home ever learn to take the seeds from a human hand? Will the child ever have the patience to let them? A lovely story of enjoying the wild things, A Bird on My Hand has charming illustrations from a chickadee’s point of view.
My Review: This is the story about a young boy who visited his gramma at her cabin. His gramma is known as the Chickadee lady because she calls out to the birds “Chickadee-dee” come to me. One by one, the birds fly out toward her to eat from her hand until all the sunflower seeds are gone.
His gramma tried to teach him how to hold out his hand steady while feeding the birds. “…. Make sure you don’t pull away and scare my birds,” she said. So he learnt how to feed the chickadees by hand. And when he returned home to the city, he filled the feeder with sunflower seeds and watched as the chickadees flew in and started eating the seeds. He was able to get the city chickadees eating right out of his hand, too.
This is a great educational book for children learning how to teach birds how to eat from your hand. The last few pages in the book gives information of which chickadees live near you, how to talk to them softly, how to hold your hand out flat.
How long chickadees live? How they survive sub-zero nights? How tiny their eggs are? This is a must for classroom teaching.
