Bird is back - in a fun board book edition!

Bird and Raccoon are playing ball when Bird gets bonked on the head. "Boo hoo hoo!" he cries. What will make Bird feel better? A kiss? A cookie? A Band-Aid? Bird's friends Raccoon, Rabbit, Beaver, Sheep and Fox are full of sweet and funny ideas.

Perfectly pitched and hilariously imagined, this charming story about a universal experience will put a smile on the face of every child who has suffered a boo-boo and every parent who has struggled to come up with just the right way to give comfort.

Raves & reviews:

"... kids and adults will laugh in spite of themselves... the theme of friendship coupled with Tankards's whimsical visuals make [this] an ideal book for storytime." -Quill & Quire, starred review
