Poetic in voice and elegant in design, this carefully researched book introduces children to a captivating array of nest facts and will spark the imaginations of children whether in a classroom reading circle or on a parent's lap.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Coming full circle from An Egg Is Quiet (2006), the first entry in Aston and Long's beautifully designed series of nature books, this volume presents close-up views of nests as well as information about them. For younger children, a brief sentence or phrase written in cursive on each double-page spread offers a mostly sensory accompaniment to the illustrations by identifying sounds, sights, textures, sizes, and other qualities associated with nests. Kids who are ready for details will enjoy the hand-lettered paragraphs that describe the enormously varied structures, functions, and types of nests used by rodents, reptiles, amphibians, fish, insects, and mammals, as well as many birds. The concise, precisely worded text is illustrated with impressive, large-scale watercolor paintings that are gracefully composed and sometimes intricately detailed. While there is no back matter, this beautiful picture book will be an asset to science collections.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist"
