Overview

Mr. Bird thinks his nest is the best in the world—until Mrs. Bird tells him it’s all wrong. Adapted from P. D. Eastman’s classic The Best Nest, simple and sturdy flaps, wheels, and slide tabs bring Mr. and Mrs. Bird’s quest for “the best nest” to life when their “mailbox-nest” gets a delivery, their “church-bell” nest cling-clangs, and a storm blows them into the best nest of all. And you can guess which one that is!

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The works of P.D. Eastman (1909-1996), the beloved author of such early reader classics as Are You My Mother? are currently going through a welcome revival. His son, Peter Eastman, has begun to publish in his style, and now several of P.D.'s titles are being reissued as interactive books. The work at hand is based on The Best Nest. It has been slightly abridged, with the effect of making Mrs. Bird more shrewish than ever, but aside from that, the basics of the story have been retained. Moveable books are fun, and youngsters will enjoy the judiciously placed flaps and pull-outs-and-ups, not to mention the volvelle of Mr. Bird frantically searching for Mrs. Bird amidst the bonging bells of her church-steeple nest. Bottom line, the crux of the old story is still there. Young listeners and readers should cheer for Mr. Bird when he finally crashes into to his old/new birdhouse to find his chick on the way and his wife satisfied at last. 2005 (orig. 1968), Random House, Ages 2 to 6.
