Summary
Meet Wordy Birdy, a very chatty bird who talks WAY more than she listens! A hilarious story with a subtle lesson from beloved author Tammi Sauer-ideal for fans of I Don't Want to Be a Frog .

Wordy Birdy LOVES to talk. "Hello, sunrise. Hello, pink sky. Hello, orange sky. . . ." But does she love to listen? NOPE . One day, while she's walking through the forest, her gift of the gab gets her into hot water- "That's a pretty tree and that's a pretty tree and that's a pretty danger sign and that's a pretty tree. . . ." Will this inattentive bird walk right into danger? Will her faraway thoughts lead her along a path of doom? It's up to her long-suffering, heard-it-all-before pals Squirrel, Raccoon, and Rabbit to save their distracted friend.

Author Tammi Sauer will have kids and their parents in stitches with this funny, fast-paced, lovable caper about the importance of paying attention-and the importance of standing by your friends through thick and thin.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Wordy Birdy is one very talkative bird. From waking up (Hello, sunrise. Hello, pink sky. Hello, orange sky . . . Oh! Hello, gorgeous, spying herself in mirror) and onward, enthused, if self-absorbed, Wordy Birdy has something to say about everything from her likes (spaghetti; unicorns) to her dislikes (turtlenecks; tuna salad) to general ruminations (Why do zebras have stripes?). Problem is, Wordy Birdy doesn't listen not even to her friends Squirrel, Rabbit, and Raccoon, who try to warn her as she blithely walks toward danger. Thankfully, her more-than-patient pals persist, and at the crucial moment, Wordy Birdy pays heed, the friends come to her rescue, and, ultimately, Wordy Birdy gains some appreciation for listening, too. The lively narrative, enhanced by abundant, often wry, speech bubbles, incorporates amusing commentary, witty asides, and reader-directed address, all of which comically conveys Wordy Birdy's verbosity, her friends' frustrations, and, ultimately, their friendship and caring. Energetic, busy layouts and page-filling, colorful cartoonish illustrations lend further pep. Employing hyperbolic elements and humor, this offers an entertaining approach to the topic of listening.--Rosenfeld, Shelle Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "Wordy Birdy is the definition of a flibbertigibbet, and she's not a little narcissistic ("Do you think there's an award for Bird of the Year?"). Above all, she's a terrible listener. But Wordy Birdy's patient friends-Squirrel, Rabbit, and Raccoon-still care about her, and when she ignores their warnings and stumbles into the path of a hungry bear, they intervene and guide her to safety. It's a slight story, and Wordy Birdy's escape from the bear doesn't register-readers may think they skipped a page. But Sauer (Truck, Truck, Goose!) and Mottram (Race Car Dreams) work hard to ingratiate themselves. The characters' comic expressions have a genial, sitcom familiarity, Wordy Birdy's prattling is suitably inane ("My third cousin Barb is a penguin. Really!"), and there's some droll breaking of the fourth wall. When the narrator tries to underplay Wordy Birdy's inattentiveness, Rabbit looks at the audience and remarks "Oh, puh-lease," while Raccoon dryly asks, "Are we talking about the same bird here?"
