The Bird Brain Books entertain and educate the kids at the same time.
We’ve been excited about this children’s picture book series by Emlyn Chand from the very start, and now that we have 10 of them available, and 2 more coming in the next few months, we think it’s the perfect time for parents to discover a new series of books for their little ones. These books are ideal for kids ranging in age from 3 to 8 years old. We think they’re different and special because, while designed to help kids discover the joy of reading books, as any good children’s picture book should, they also treat kids with respect and challenge them.
Each book provides a fun story with colorful illustrations to excite them, but each story also provides informative tidbits and an important life lesson – as a subtle, natural part of the story. The first 3 books in the series, including Honey the Hero which is now on sale, were illustrated by the talented Sarah Shaw, who’s colorful style and ability to paint emotion on the animals’ faces have made them big hits with the kids. Books 4-10 in the series are illustrated by the equally talented Noelle Giffin in a slightly different style – the animé style that’s so popular these days.

Honey, an inquisitive young parakeet living in the Australian Outback, decides to become a superhero after she spies a human family watching Superman. Since she already has the power of flight, all she needs to do is create a costume to conceal her true identity and then fly off in search of animals that need rescuing.
Unfortunately, every time she tries to help, Honey only ends up making matters worse. She spoils Kangaroo’s game of hide-and-go-seek by revealing his hiding place to Wallaby; Mr. Anteater must go hungry when she alerts the ants to his presence, and Mrs. Koala is made a laughingstock among bears when Honey pretends to be her Joey. Finally realizing that she’s not as heroic as she’d like, Honey gives up her day-saving efforts.
But what happens when someone actually needs Honey’s help? Will she rise to the challenge?
There’s only one way to find out: join Honey in her wayward adventure.
