There Is a Bird on Your Head! 12/13/12

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)There Is a Bird on Your Head! by Mo Willems was the perfect springtime book for Harriet to read. At the time we had lots of birds making nests around our home, including a pair of mourning doves in the eaves above our front door.

In the Mo Willems book, a pair of birds fall in love, make a nest and raise chicks, all on Gerald's head. Each new thing the birds do results in Piggie pointing out what they've done in deadpan fashion. Gerald, then reacts in sheer panic but doesn't actually do anything to stop them. It's funny because it's so absurd.

The book encourages young readers to yell, shout and scream. It's a fun book to read aloud. It's also a fun one to listen to, which is how I spent most of my time taking in the story.

Five stars
