Summary:

This sweet picture book showcases 15 birds and the nests they build to keep their growing babies safe and warm.  Absolutely beautifully illustrated, this book will entrance kids as they learn about the smallest nest made of spiderweb, one woven of silky grass, and another burrowed into the ground.  Each page contains a short rhyme revealing the type of nest the bird uses, and then some extra information on that particular bird species.  This book is a great way to start discussion about living things and their needs and the diversity of life.
