Picture Book Review: Cockatoo, Too
If there’s a bird on the cover of a book, there’s a pretty good chance I buy it.

Whew, it’s a jungle in there.
So if there’s a bird on the cover of a book, there’s a pretty good chance I buy it. When it’s a kids book with THIS title, and a dedication that says “For Word Nerds and Bird Nerds” there’s a 100% chance I buy it. I don’t even hesitate when the art is this fun, either.
With that said, this is actually the most adorably silly book ever. And I know all the little plays on “to/too/two” are over her head right now, but she’s nearly reading along with me since the word gets repeated so much, and it’s really fun. Any time I pull this book out, she gets really excited. She loves touching the birds, too.
Did we wear our toucan shirt just for this photo? Of course we did.
