Bird Lady Meets Mort and Ort in It's a Great Day for Pulling Weeds
In this tender and fact-filled story, Bird Lady is the one being taught to recognize her careless gardening practices by none other than a pair of unusually attractive and vividly colorful birds, Mort and Ort Aahkamort.

One soggy spring morning while weeding her garden, Mort and Ort suddenly appear. At first, she ignores what she thought to be a gravelly voice since by looking around she could not see anyone. She shrugged it off and continues to weed when suddenly she hears the voice again. This time, she sees a kaleidoscope of color on a pair of unusually tall birds. Sitting atop the weather-worn shed directly behind her, they were talking to one another in words Bird Lady could completely understand.

At first, she is both startled and a bit fearful when the larger one in his gravelly voice begins to talk directly to her by saying “It’s a great day for pulling weeds!” She begins to lose some of her fear as a result of looking into their exceptionally large fawn brown eyes. It isn’t until a short time later when Ort holds out her right wing and gently hugs Bird Lady’s left leg that the fear disappears and friendship begins. The lessons that follow throughout the rest of the story result in Bird Lady changing her gardening practices to help wildlife visitors thrive in her gardens.

Bird Lady Meets Mort and Ort in It’s a Great Day for Walking the Beach!

This book is the second in the series written by Gramma Golden to educate children and adults about their responsibility to help improve the environment. In the previous book, Bird Lady was hopeful she would once more see her two colorful friends who taught her so many valuable lessons about gardening. While she was not certain they would return, she remained hopeful.

The main characters in the series, Mort and Ort Aahkamort, suddenly surprise Bird Lady on a beautiful beach to teach her more lessons about nature. This time, the lessons are about harmful effects on marine wildlife and shorebirds caused by litter and plastics carelessly left scattered on the beach.

Once Bird Lady learns about these harmful effects, she makes it her mission to educate others. You will meet two new characters, Pete the Pilot and Ebenezer, her giraffe walking stick, as they join her on her journey.

This book is the third in the series written by Gramma Golden to educate children and adults about their responsibility to help improve the health and well-being of upcoming generations. It is a coloring book conversation that raises awareness of childhood bullying and the need to encourage and practice kindness and healthy eating lifestyles.

The story picks up from book two as Bird Lady arrives home from taking a vacation at the beach. While flying home, she finds her airplane seat and seatbelt to be a bit tight and uncomfortable as are her shoes. She attributes it to possibly eating too much food while on vacation and vows to do a much better job of choosing what to eat when she gets back home.

The following day, she embarks on her grocery shopping trip with the intent to fill her cupboards, refrigerator and freezer with her favorite foods. Suddenly, through the mist of the water sprayer over the fresh vegetables in the supermarket, she sees the main characters of the book, her friends Mort and Ort Aahkamort. They are the colorful pair of birds who have taught her lessons before about gardening and caring for the environment. She is hopeful they might teach her this time about making better food choices.

They all decide to go visit awhile in the coffee shop where Bird Lady confesses to them her seat, seatbelt and shoes all felt tight on the trip home. She also shared she had been bullied as a child and how she had been left out of many activities growing up.

The remainder of the story revolves around their plan to help Bird Lady consider exercising more, practice wise shopping habits, eating healthy foods, and sharing her story about how bullying affected her. She realizes her desire is to teach children to treat others with kindness.
