Another great book has hit the Brighton District Library shelves!

We love when we get new picture books here at BDL, we’re like kids in a candy store! The Youth staff all peruse and paw through the collection, sharing our favorites with each other.

I have found a new favorite… Nerdy Birdy by Aaron Reynolds, Pictures by Matt Davies.

Nerdy Birdy likes reading, and video games, and reading about video games. He is a “Nerdy” birdy. Then there are the “COOL” Birdies who like showing off, hunting and eating worms, but they don’t like nerdy birdies. Dejected Nerdy Birdy discovers there are more birds like him and everything is going well until a new bird moves in. She looks lonely, but is not like Nerdy Birdy at all. What should Nerdy Birdy do?

This is an endearing book that is funny, but also teaches children to see the value in being inclusive in their selection of friends.
