About the Story

Bird and Bear are the best of friends. 

When Bird takes Bear to the park for a very special day, there are so many things to do and see. 

They discover high and low, short and tall, and even big and small.

But will Bear remember that it is Bird’s birthday?

This early learning story is perfect for pre-schoolers and looks at opposites, shadowplay, and friendship. It is a beautiful follow-up picture book to Bird and Bear by award-winning illustrator Ann James. The joy of the friendship between Bird and Bear, plus the sense of discovery and adventure, combined with play and imagination are simply delightful.

Read sweetly by Emmanuelle Mattana (from ABCMe's Mustangs FC), Bird and Bear and the Special Day is an adorable story to share with younger viewers.
