Have You Heard the Nesting Bird?
Most children love birds and have an undying interest in learning about them. This charming non-fiction picture book takes on a great variety of birds and the individual calls each of them has, all the while focusing on the particular quietness of a nesting robin. That is the one bird that makes no call, that doesn’t sing. The reader is taken back and forth to this bird and that bird but with occasional stops back at the nest to see how the sitting robin is getting on. At last, another robin comes to join the mama robin in the nest as eggs break, and the tiny baby robins fill the nest. At last they are out.
Rita Gray has written a book that is full of natural bird calls inserted into a lovely, rhyming text that follows a young boy and girl through their neighborhood as they study the nature around them. The muted illustrations by Kenard Pak expose his love of nature and especially of birds. They will delight young people and their parents as they journey along with the young boy and girl on their nature walk.
