Like many small children, the blue tit chick is a little scared when left alone.

It is experiencing sights, sounds and other living creatures for the first time, which can be overwhelming. 

For animal lovers, the natural instinct is to take care of a chick that's fallen from its nest or been left alone, but should we really intervene?

 

Children's book that will make a wonderful gift for every little animal lover.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

This book has been not just a story before bed for my girls, but an instrument of wonder. The story, despite being about an ordinary walk, it's so rich in details and sensations that my girls find themselves relating sometimes to the person and sometimes to the little bird! On top of that, each time we read it, they are mesmerised by the illustrations, we love the fact that they are realistic and the attention to detail. I appreciate the interesting facts included at the end, when you close the book you feel like you have actually learned something while relaxing with a sweet story.
