The text of my book details the struggle of young chicks when they are sold by uncaring pet shops and farmers to the parents of children, who present the dyed birds to their children at Easter. I have described the festiveness of Easter from the time of a pagan goddess Aostra, the Persians, and early Christians. Legislation to fight the sale of dyed baby chicks was begun by the mid 20th century.
Woodpecker is disturbing everyone with his important message. His friends help him so that they can go back to sleep. Children will enjoy howling, meowing, and crowing as they help Woodpecker send the important message.
"Friends in the Meadow-Birds" is a children's book introducing the hobby of bird watching.
The book can be read to children as young as two. Older children can easily read it themselves.Many children find watching birds fascinating.It is a great hobby that can be an introduction to nature and the environmental issues that we face. While learning, children will find the hobby to be just plain fun!
