About the Book and Author
One day Ebb and Flo find a bird sitting in their boat – in Ebb’s favourite spot! Flo invites the bird to join them, but Ebb isn’t so sure and wishes the bird would just fly away. But what happens when Ebb’s wish comes true?
A seaside story of friendship with Ebb and Flo written by Jane Simmons and published by Graffeg Ltd.
Kit enjoyed “beep beep beep”ing along with Bird
This is the first Ebb and Flo book we have read and Kit was intrigued by the cast of three; Ebb the dog, Flo the girl and Bird the goose. “A dog and a goose in a boat!?”
As we read the book together Kit identified the emotions that Ebb was feeling: sad and jealous of Bird to begin with. Then a different kind of sadness, upset and surprise that Bird was no longer with them. Finally he was happy that Bird was back.
We talked through these feelings and Kit enjoyed “beep beep beep”ing along with Bird.
Kit has chosen more Ebb and Flo titles to explore from the pictures at the back of this book so we will definitely return to the series!
