BlueBird by Bob Staake

Bluebird, for ages 3-7, is told entirely with pictures so children have to “interpret” what is happening. When a little blue bird and a little boy become friends they have fun around town but when at the end of the day they encounter three bullies and little blue bird is caught in the crossfire. A poignant tale of friendship and letting go. The illustrations are simple and mostly done in black and white with a blue background and of course the little blue bird. The only burst of color are the other “angel birdies” that come down from the heavens.

From Random House:

  • In his most beautiful and moving work to date, Bob Staake explores the universal themes of loneliness, bullying, and the importance of friendship. In this emotional picture book, readers will be captivated as they follow the journey of a bluebird as he develops a friendship with a young boy and ultimately risks his life to save the boy from harm. Both simple and evocative, this timeless and profound story will resonate with readers young and old.

    I think that my daughter would really enjoy making up her own story to ‘read’ to me.

    I do not think I would like this. I think there are better ways for kids to develop imagination.
    I think words are important for the very young.

    This looks interesting. I think the youngest might like it, he enjoys lots of pictures and telling us his version of whats going on 🙂 Thanks for the review.
