Be Tidy or Not? by Joel Brown

Charming is a very dirty and messy bird. Both of these birds are best friends. They look past each other's differences.

Zoom Boom is at it again. This time Careless Carrie the Crow is not paying attention to what she should be doing. He saves her from a car as she is crossing in front of the bus. He keeps her from running out into the street to get a book she dropped and then he saves her when she trips going down the stairs.  Great lessons about how to stay safe.
