What’s It About?

Bertie the birdie knows best!

He’s outgrown his nest.

Bertie is ready to fly for the very first time.

As he spreads his wings to take off, a convincing penguin yells at him “STOP!”.

Admiral Penguin convinces Bertie to learn some new skills and drills before tries to fly.

As the story unfolds, Bertie tries to fly again and again but other birds squawk at him to “STOP!”.

But not one of these persuasive birds trying to give Bertie advice has ever flown!

Will Bertie learn to trust his own instincts to fly?

Book Activity (Draw the Word and Trace the Letters)

“Draw the Words and Trace the Letters” is a wonderful exercise for toddlers and kindergarteners to do for a few reasons:

  • Learn early writing skills
  • Develop fine motor strength
  • Encourage cognitive skills (understand the relationship of the word to draw the picture)

Use the words on the left to trace: bird, tree, nest, sun, glasses, map.

Then, draw the word to the right!
