Book Weekend – Nests

JacketTYVTNTD3Spring is sneaking up, and the bird are getting ready.  Two new books are ready for readers to enjoy in our libraries!

Mama Built A Little Nest by Jennifer Ward, describes in simple rhyming words, the different types of nests built by different types of birds.  Steve Jenkins, a Caldecott Honoree, uses cut out water-painted images to recreate the feel of feathers and twigs.

Nest by Jorey Hurley follows the a cycle of bird born in spring through-out the seasons.  Using crisp, vibrant artwork with minimal words, the story follows one bird as she is born in a nest, through her enjoyment of the season, until the next spring when she has found a mate to make another nest with.
