No wonder you received so many honors on this! What a great story. I like to learn new things too and this was a delight for me. The video enhanced the poem and lets children learn new sounds. You must be a teacher or a writer of childrens' books. Thank you for this delightful Toucan adventure.

    Thanks for the review, Wolf Poet Sherry. I appreciate your comments very much and am glad you liked this story and learned new things. I did, too, when I researched this unique bird. I am glad you liked the video and thought it would let children learn new sounds. I am retired high school teacher and only just recently tried my hand at children's stories.

This is a fun and educational post. Children would adore reading this, and wouldn't even know they were learning. Great, I hope you produce a whole book.

This isn`t just a dry listing of facts about the Toucan. This is a wonderful piece written with such attention and dedication as to capture the interest of young children. The language, the tone, everything about it was great! You even involved them in the story.
I will save this one for my kids.

I enjoyed your Toucan tale. A most fascinating bird and you have a nice mixture of humour and information here that saves the tale from being too didactic. The POV of the Toucan also works well and would, I think, appeal to many children.

A very well-written story for children and interesting facts of the Toucan bird that will help children to recognize these birds in nature and everytime they struggle to peel an orange they will think about this bird.

Hello Pam,
This is a wonderful addition to your series of children's stories about animals and birds. You picked a great subject for this story, the colorful Toucan.
The first two lines are a great introduction to the Toucan, as we learn its name, Toco, how to pronounce it, that it rhymes, and that it likes to eat fruit.
I like how you don't shy away from "Big Words" such as "frugivore," but still describe things in a way child can understand.
Excellent fact-filled tale of the toucan.
Kids will have a great time repeating the sounds the toucan--ehh-ehh!.
Marvelous presentation: picture, video, and notes.
Outstanding children's story
Robert

    Thank you for the exceptional rating and review, Robert. I am glad you liked the addition of Toco to my collection of children's tales. I appreciate your comment about including a few big words, but describe them in a fun filled way. I think they would like trying the sounds, too. I am glad you liked the presentation, picture, video, and notes.
