A Nest Full of Eggs

( 1 )

Overview

This first look at robins follows a full year of growth and change: how the birds develop inside their egg during the spring, how they mature from chicks into fledglings in the summer, how they learn to fly in the fall, and how they leave for warmer climes in winter—only to return when spring comes around again.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Judy Katsh
Characteristics of birds, examples of diversity within the bird world, and bird growth and development are topics well covered in this simple introduction to the field. While the illustration style may cause older readers to think of Dick and Jane, the double-page spreads of bird's feathers and nests will intrigue their young partners. There's just enough information here so that young readers will feel informed, but not necessarily ready to join the Audubon Society. Part of the "Let's Read and Find Out Science" series.
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2A young boy and girl observe the activities of a robin family from the first ``cheer-up'' call of spring, through nest building, hatching, and fledging. Additional information about other kinds of birds and their behaviors is touched upon. One double-spread shows development within the egg. The format is open and inviting with illustrations that have child appeal. However, the colors appear rather flat and washed out, lacking the exuberance one associates with the season. An adequate accompaniment to Barrie Watts's Birds' Nest (Silver Burdett, 1991), a photographic presentation of the nesting season of the blue titmouse.Diane Nunn, Richard E.
