Birds & Eggs is one of my favorite themes from Experience Curriculum I have a lot of favorites… This post shares all that’s included in this month’s theme, so you’re in the right place if you’re wondering What’s in the Box? Birds & Eggs.

One of the story books this month is called Hello Bird.

Hello Bird
Get acquainted with a feathered menagerie in a participatory trip through the wide world of birds! Little blue eggs. Are they new? How many are there? One, two. This call and response story supports patterning and counting skills. Hello Bird is an instant classic as toddlers mimic these cute, cuddly baby creatures with their own movements, including the bear, turtle, fox, and more!
