Bird (a little blue budgie) whistles and sings from morning until bedtime. Mother and Dad are a wee bit tired of the constant whistling and tell bird to, “Be Quiet!”
In the middle of the night a burglar breaks in and wakes Bird. Bird begins to whistle, chirp and scold loudly rousing the family and scaring off the thief. Mother and Dad let know Bird how clever he is and tell him he can whistle and sing as loudly as he likes.
Cooper enjoyed this book. She liked the colorful illustrations (by AJ Weaver). Cooper thought this book had a very important message – always listen to your bird. She thought Bird was very brave – and also very clever. At the very end of the book he even learns to talk, saying, “Be quiet, Bird!”
