The dual language format is a fun formula for helping young children to learn vocabulary in a new language.
A little bird has no friends because he won't try to fly like the other birds.
He tries to find friends but has no luck.
After finding a kiwi who is stuck in a hole he looks for someone to help him get out.
In his haste to find help he unconsciously finds himself flying.
Story summary: The little bird is afraid to fly. His bird friends leave him when they realize he can't fly. The little bird speaks with other animals to ask if they will be his friends. Basically, the unfortunate bird gets a hard “no” everywhere! He then finds a kiwi bird stuck in the mud but is too small to rescue it. He goes back to the other, bigger animals for assistance. As he's trying to round them up… he starts flying spontaneously. The other animals call him brave, the kiwi bird gets saved, and the little bird is no longer afraid of flying.
I'm a little behind on my reviews, so I happened to read and compare the Spanish, Italian, and German versions of this book side-by-side. I was surprised to see some differences (aside from the second language, of course!). Two had coloring pages at the end (including this one), but one did not. The German version used more pages to tell the story, repeating one background as the little bird meets each animal and asks them to be his friend. This Spanish version (as well as the Italian one) left out a double-page spread toward the end showing the little bird having trouble with his first flight. That would have been wonderful to include in this (and the other) book, as it shows new skills take time to hone, but persistence pays off. I wasn't terribly pleased that nobody wanted to be friends with this poor little bird throughout most of the book. Inclusivity is a buzzword for a reason, and I wish this book hadn’t gone the opposite way.
The book also had a few dialogue punctuation errors. For those of us used to English quotation marks, the Spanish use of the long dash is complex and a bit strange. This author left off at least one at the start of a standalone dialogue sentence and sometimes used spaces around it inappropriately. I don’t like to see errors like this in children’s books, as kids do learn everywhere. But, all in all, if you're trying to raise a bilingual English-Spanish-speaking child, she or he may find this book enjoyable.
I received a free copy of this picture book, but that did not affect my review.
These books are a great help for helping, mostly kids, learn at least one other language. Because of these books, I've taken on learning another language. The stories have a good amount of word/phrase repetition to help readers learn the language. Highly recommended.
