Description

Children's author and illustrator Philip C. Stead counts a Caldecott Medal among his many literary accomplishments. A Home for Bird is a touching tale of friendship and determination. Out one day, Vernon the toad happens upon a tiny blue bird who is oddly silent. Vernon introduces Bird to his friends and tours him around to many of his favorite places, but Bird still won' t talk. Thinking that Bird is quiet because he is homesick, Vernon takes his new friend on an exciting journey to find him a home.

Professional reviews

"When toad Vernon comes upon a silent bird who appears shy and lost, he embarks on a journey to help Bird find his home. When a stranger points them to a little house, the weary travelers settle in for the night. Is the ticktocking abode Bird's home? Andrew Watts is as earnest in his narration as Vernon is in his empathy for Bird. Watts's warm, rich voice is reassuring to young listeners who may be anxious for the traveling animals, and his understated delivery makes the story's ending all the more joyful. Poring over Stead's illustrations, which look like colorful scribbles, will enrich the listening experience. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
