In this sweet read-aloud, a little bird in the big city searches for the perfect puddle. Fans of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears” will enjoy Little Bird’s search for a just-right puddle after a rainstorm. He searches far and wide, but some puddles are too big, some are too small, and some are already crowded with bathers.
When Little Bird finds a good-looking puddle in a city park, one surprise after another spoils his bath. A ball comes bounce-bounce-bouncing. . . . A little girl comes flip-flop-flapping. . . . And a dog comes arf-arf-arfing . . . straight through Little Bird’s puddle. But soon, Little Bird finds the perfect puddle to call his own.
