In this cute classic picture book, a mother bird heads off to find food for her baby bird just as it is hatching. The egg hatches in the mother’s absence, and newly hatched baby bird sets off to find its mother in unlikely places. He walks right past his real mother, of course, but is safely deposited in his nest right before his mother returns with a juicy worm for him to eat.
Our Bird Pre-Writing Activity for Kids
My daughter Anna loves simple printable activities right now, so I made her an easy matching game. It’s very simple: draw a line matching the bird on the left side of the page with the identical (flipped) bird on the right side of the page.
My five-year-old loved it – her reaction was, “When can I get more?” Then she flipped the page over and worked on her fine motor skills some more by tracing the birds on the back of the page.
You can download our bird pre-writing activity here (or by clicking on the image above). I hope you enjoy it!
