One Little Bird by Sheryl Webster & illustrated by Helen Shoesmith

Rosa is just one little bird. Her tree is being cut down leaving her homeless. What does it matter? She’s just one little bird.

Actually, it matters a lot! Rosa rallies the other animals encouraging them to stand up to the people who are taking their homes. If humans are going to take the animals’ streams, forests and oceans, then the animals are going to take the humans’ homes in return. Sloths on sofas, giraffes in beds and even lions in the laundry – these animals will not budge. They are going to teach these humans a lesson!

Through a charming, humorous plot and fun illustrations full of life and movement, One Little Bird shows readers that just one person can make a difference. If these animals can stand up to humans destroying their homes, then so can we! From rainforests to grasslands to the jungle, readers realise that issues like deforestation, increased agriculture and construction are causing problems for the animals of the world. This funny twist on the theme of conservation will inspire and challenge children across the primary school age range.
