A robin’s animal friends help build her nest in this cumulative collage picture book.

Robin is building a nest, and her friends are ready to help! The squirrel trims the twigs. The dog brings the string. The horse shares his straw. And then a surprise gatefold spread reveals how Robin knits them all together to make a safe and cozy home for her babies.

A fun, interactive story that fans of animals will enjoy reading. Great for spring time, young readers will enjoy seeing how Robin, and each of her friends help her make her nest. Each friend has something unique to offer her; from the mud that holds the nest together, to the twigs and various other things she needs. This story is reminiscent of Brown Bear, Brown Bear What Do You See in both the repetitive story telling, and illustrations. This book is a great addition to elementary school classrooms. 

I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~ Anna Quindlen

Good children's literature appeals not only to
the child in the adult, but to the adult in the child.
