Little Red Bird: A Tale . Bruel, author of Bad Kitty (2005), does a good job of spinning a rather sophisticated theme in a kid-friendly manner, inviting children to ponder the bird’s dilemma with a repeated refrain: I wonder what YOU would do? Energetically mixing panels and full-page art, the illustrations point Little Red Bird (and readers) in a clear direction, showing human habitations as uninvitingly black, gray, and straight lined, while the park offers a riot of colors and shapes.

A Tale Told in Rhyme. Written and illustrated by Nick Bruel. Bruel's narrative invites discussion and could be considered as an additional purchase. Jayne Damron, Farmington Community Library, MI, School Library Journal. Little Red Bird "had all she could need-, She had water and seed, And plenty to read," but she longed, we are told, to be ever so bold: to spread her red wings and to see all the things outside of her place and the curtains of lace at the window of her dim abode. When she finds (to her glee) portals open-she's free!-she is wracked.

Little Red Bird book. Sweetly enchanting paintings and a gently rhyming text tell the tale of the little red bird who is quite content in her cage, but curiou. hen the cage door is left open, she sees her chance and bravely hops out into the world. It's all so magnificent and thrilling for the little SOMETHING NEW AND UNEXPECTED – sweet and gentle– from the creator of Bad Kitty and Poor Puppy. Sweetly enchanting paintings and a gently rhyming text tell the tale of the little red bird who is quite content in her cage, but curious.

Wonderful book told in rhyme. Read this book to Little Bird's class for library this week. I love to read books that encourage children to take care of animals and consider them as beings that feel. Powerful in its own way. The very first in Andrea Beaty’s series.

Nick Bruel's first picture book about Bad Kitty since the uproarious Poor .

Nick Bruel's first picture book about Bad Kitty since the uproarious Poor Puppy in 2007 is full of rhyming mayhem. Telling the tale of Bad Kitty and the mischief she gets up to on Christmas Eve, this story will have cat lovers nodding sagely as they encounter familiar antics. It's doubtless a great pick for children but as I don't have any, I read it for myself and really enjoyed it (well, actually I listened to the audio version but more. This very appealing picture book/rhyming story is a great little tale to read aloud to your youngster or for your independent reader to read alone.

Little Birds are sleeping All among the pins, Where the loser wins: Where, I say, he sneezes When and how he pleases - So the Tale begins. Little Birds are writing Interesting books, To be read by cooks: Read, I say, not roasted - Letterpress, when toasted, Loses its good looks.

SOMETHING NEW AND UNEXPECTED – sweet and gentle– from the creator of Bad Kitty and Poor Puppy.

Sweetly enchanting paintings and a gently rhyming text tell the tale of the little red bird who is quite content in her cage, but curious… When the cage door is left open, she sees her chance and bravely hops out into the world. It's all so magnificent and thrilling for the little red bird – and for readers. In the end, Nick Bruel leaves both with a question. When the bird sees a familiar house and window and golden cage, will she return to it? Would you?

  • I found this treasure of a book in our local library and my 3.5-year-old daughter absolutely loved it! The story is of Little Red Bird who leads an idyllic life in a cage - has plenty of water, seed, and reading material. But one fine day, Little Red Bird gets a glimpse of something beautiful and green outside the window, and an open cage enables the little bird to explore the world outside [though not without some soul-searching first]. Towards the end, little red bird starts missing home, and wonders what it should do? Stay and explore the world some more, or go home back to familiar surroundings? The ending is open-ended and invites discussion as to what the little bird should do. The rhyming text makes for a delightful read-aloud experience and the pictures are lavishly illustrated in bold, bright colors. It's a great tool to use for discussing choices and decisions with little ones [preschoolers]. Highly recommended!

  • Our family first fell in love with Nick Bruel's style when we read "Bob and Otto." Now this book has become a new favorite. It's a pleasure to read aloud to kids (thank goodness -- because you will be asked to do so again and again). The illustrations are vibrant and fun.

    But it's the story itself that makes this book a stand-out. Bruel somehow manages to put into rhyme a weighty topic: Is it better to stay where it's safe and predictable, yet limiting? Or is it better to take some risks and stretch your wings?

    What is GREAT is that the author does NOT answer the question for us! He doesn't even steer us one way or another. In fact, he makes a reader think that both options are valid choices -- and that you have to make the choice that's best for you. What a concept: a book that encourages us to think. Kids need more books like this.

  • Mr. Bruel continues to do excellent work! This book takes on a rather sophisticated subject in a way that is very engaging for children (and adults). Is the grass greener on the other side?

    From the perspective of a parent I appreciate the way he was able to capture the interest of my children and spark a lot of conversation between us. They may not realize it, but they were dealing with some rather intellectual subject matter when they discussed the 'what's' and 'why's' of their answer to Mr. Bruel's burning question: "What would YOU do?"

    It appears that from the perspective of my children, Little Red Bird was a lot of "Fun"! My little boy felt personally involved in Little Red Bird's adventure! He liked to take his finger and hop around the room with Little Red Bird... He liked to 'swoosh' his hand through the air (complete with sound effects) when Little Red Bird flew around outside!

    At the end, when that question is asked, both of my kids got up off the couch and 'flew' around the room... I guess that answers that!

    A very nice book that entertains and stimulates the brain in equal doses! I recommend it highly.

  • Nick Bruel has done it again! This story has all the elements of a great picture book: a main character with a problem that children can relate to, simple and colorful illustrations and predictive text. I read this story to my first grade students and they absolutely loved it. They were already huge fans of Mr. Bruel's and they enjoyed comparing this story to his other work. They even noticed that the birds in this story have the same head shape as Bob and Otto. This story led to a great discussion about choices and consequences. We discussed how kids sometimes want things that they think are great for them, but parents can see beyond what they want and may decide that it's not best for them at the time. We also talked about what birds need to survive and how these basic needs were met while living as a pet and how they could be met if he decided to live in the wild. In sum, I highly recommend this book to all K-2 teachers and to parents w/ young children. Thanks Nick for another fantastic story! Keep them coming.

  • I don't know what I like more about this book, the gorgeous illustrations or the witty, creative prose. Nick Bruel has written a charming story about a little bird and his choice about whether to stay in his comfortable cage or go out and explore the big world. The "what would you do?" questions that appear several times in the book were the launching pad for some great conversations between my kids and me. A real gem, and one that I will give as a gift to all the kids I know.

  • I just received a copy of Little Red Bird and read it aloud to my students (I am a media specialist) and they were begging for me to read it again! It's a great book about the choices we make and the decisions to decide--much like the great Dr. Seuss' Oh The Places You'll Go! The world is a wide open space and one little bird must choose to stay, or go. I recommend reading this to kids of all ages and then ask them the story's refrain, "What would YOU do?"
    So, teachers and parents alike out there, this is a great "thinking" story that would add to any conversation with children when they must weigh the pros and cons of their choices.

  • I pre-ordered this book through Amazon and received it in the mail a few days ago. In this book, there is an adult theme that is presented in a kid friendly way...what would you do? The bird in this book must make choices that will affect it's life but before the birds makes a decision the author presents the reader with "What would you do?" What a wonderful conversation starter with children! The illustrations are beautifully done. This would be a fantastic addition to any library (personal, school, classroom or public). This is another fabulous book by Nick Bruel.
