This Level One reader opens with a bird saying "moo" instead of "tweet." Moo Bird is clearly different from the other birds in his nest. He feels like he doesn't belong. So Moo Bird goes off in search of where he DOES belong. Will Cow want to be his friend? At last, Moo Bird finds a friend.... Who will it be?
