Little Bird Lost is available online and in bookshops:
One of the baby birds seems to be missing. His greedy siblings have pushed him out of view! A tale of sibling rivalry and their parents love for ALL their offspring.
The series of high-quality real-life photographs provide a rare opportunity of a birds-eye view of a family of baby swallows in their nest.
The length and content make it a perfect bedtime story, a great start for beginner readers and a delightful study of the natural world.
The birds antics provide a perfect platform for discussion on important topics such as sharing and bullying.
The reading content is aimed at 3-5 year-olds, but the photographs and the story that they tell will fascinate all age groups.
“Even as an adult I actually enjoyed this book!”
“Brought a smile to my face.”

Steve Larkinson spotted this family of swallows in the eaves of a small bakery in south-west France and this delightful story unfolded as he photographed them.
Kate Larkinson added the words in rhyming couplets and created the book.
