Teachers Beware!! Rescuing Mrs Birdley written by Aaron Reynolds and illustrated by Emma Reynolds will teach children how to keep teachers locked away in their natural habitat… the classroom.
When animal expert Miranda sees her teacher wandering freely around the town, she puts all she has learnt from Wildlife TV star Nature Joe into practice and sets out on a mission to put Mrs Birdley back in her natural habitat… the classroom.
Aaron and Emma have created a feisty, independent, and tenacious character in Miranda. In this book you get to see the world how Miranda sees it. Emma has cleverly used shades of green to turn day-to-day scenes into jungle terrain for Miranda to navigate in her capture-and-rescue mission of Mrs Birdley.
Children will love Miranda’s efforts to return Mrs Birdley to her natural habitat. She never gives up! Miranda is so endearing, you will find yourself willing her on. This book is lots of fun and didn’t have the ending I was expecting!
