Have you been doing the Bookstart Bird Boogie this week?
The chosen book for this year’s National Bookstart Week (June 4th-10th) is A Busy Day for Birds by Lucy Cousins and we picked one up this morning at a Children’s Centre group.
Similar to last year’s Everybunny Dance, the title has proved a hit with the minis this evening as it is extremely enactable.
Shouting cock-a-doodle-doo, flapping their wings, hopping, swooping and wiggling their feathers along with the story, they copied the illustrations of woodpeckers, swans, parrots, starlings, flamingos, penguins, ostriches, peacocks, owls and more.
If you’re a friend of the feathered then you might like to know that the first Swift Awareness Week (June 16th-23rd) is coming up.
And, if it’s a feather-based fun day out you’re looking for, take a look at Kayleigh’s Hawk Conservancy Trust Review on her blog Candyfloss & Dreams which featured vultures, owls and secretary birds as well as hawks.
