A captivating story, told in rhyming verse, about a hadeda who loves to sing. Hagedash and her family will be familiar characters to children across the country – the cast is drawn from the comical birds they see every day on garden lawns. The text offers insight into the real-life traits and habits of hadedas and tells the story of Hagedash, her happy meeting with Hagar and their growing family.
