Birdsongs

In this backwards counting book, a red-headed woodpecker starts the day as he raps a tap dance with his beak, pecking 10 times as he looks for breakfast bugs.

By the end of the day a hummingbird sucks one last treat from the trumpet-shaped honeysuckle. She makes 1 tiny sound in her high voice: tzik.

But the story isn't over...not until the mockingbird begins to sing from the pine tree, copying all of the songs and calls she has heard during the day:

tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat tat
coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo coo
chip chip chip chip chip chip chip chip
eeyah eeyah eeyah eeyah eeyah eeyah eeyah
dee dee dee dee dee dee
qua qua qua qua qua
caw caw caw caw
tut tut tut
chuck chuck
tzik
