About the Story

Bird and Bear are two friends who love discovering the world around them. In this adventure, they go on a picnic to celebrate Bear's birthday. While at the pier, they look into the water and see another bear and another bird. Have they found two new friends? Bird and Bear are so excited...

Ann James has created a beautifully simple friendship between Bird and Bear, and children will love the charming illustrations and the gentle humour of the story, plus the wonderful introduction to the concept of reflections.

Read sweetly by Emmanuelle Mattana (from ABCMe's Mustangs FC), Bird and Bear is sure to delight.
