Grumpy Bird (Jeremy Tankard, Scholastic Press, 2007)
What a pleasure it was when my seven year-old daughter brought Grumpy Bird home from her school library – it was one of our favourite picture books 3 years ago. Parents everywhere have tried to master the art of distraction and diversion, which is a theme of this book. Children will love yelling out bird’s increasingly grumpy lines and will giggle at the snack that is served on the final page.
*Parent warning* – this book could result in you buying gummy worms for your child.
