Product Description

This Mexican folktale tells the story of a beautiful bird named Cuckoo, who loves to sing all night and day. When the other birds in the forest need help planting seeds, Cuckoo does not help them, but continues to sing instead. After the planting, the birds sleep deeply and do not notice the raging fire threatening to burn all of the seeds. Cuckoo sacrifices her beautiful singing voice and colorful feathers to save the seeds. The birds of the forest learn not to judge a book by it's cover; for although Cuckoo is perceived to be frivolous, she has more courage than the birds ever imagined. Throughout the story children will be captivated by the strikingly colorful illustrations and easy-to-read font.
