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.
