Bird to Bird
Published: 2018 by Black Dog Books
Level: Primary Years (3-5)
Deep in the forest where sundrops spill a bird sends seeds to the floor'. The seed becomes a sapling, the sapling a forest high tree. When the tree is grown it leaves the forest to become beds, looms, roof beams and eventually a child's carved bird ready to return across the sea. A subtle story, beautifully illustrated, depicting a part of Australia's history. A story about where materials come from and where they go and about the reuse of those items.
