Squishy Squashy Birds by Carl van Wijk & Alicia Munday.

squishy birdsSquishy Squashy Birds by Carl van Wijk & Alicia Munday. Pub. Potton & Burton, 2015.

How come the birds are all squishy and Squashy I asked myself? Well they are in a book titled Endangered Birds of New Zealand and the book is in Sammy’s backpack.

He takes the book to school as part of show and tell, opens the book and all these wondrous birds gets out. There is the Takahe,  Toroa, Hoiho, Kakapo, Kiwi, Tieke and Kokako and they are all featured on a page by themselves in splendid colour and detail by Carl van Wijk.

Meant as means to highlight New Zealand’s endangered birds with a small pen portrait of each bird in the back of the book.

Great for school libraries and for children in their own home. My granddaughters pawed over it and it was a way in to this important subject.
