Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2?A young boy and girl observe the activities of a robin family from the first "cheer-up" call of spring, through nest building, hatching, and fledging. Additional information about other kinds of birds and their behaviors is touched upon. One double-spread shows development within the egg. The format is open and inviting with illustrations that have child appeal. However, the colors appear rather flat and washed out, lacking the exuberance one associates with the season. An adequate accompaniment to Barrie Watts's Birds' Nest (Silver Burdett, 1991), a photographic presentation of the nesting season of the blue titmouse.?Diane Nunn, Richard E.

From Booklist

Gr. 1^-3. More complex than most stage-one books in the Let's Read-and-Find-Out series, this begins with a pair of American robins building a nest in a suburban garden. Two kids watch the nest and see the eggs hatch out and the babies learn to fly. At the same time they read about birds in all kinds of places. The book-within-a-book may be a bit confusing for early readers, but the cheerful pencil-and-watercolor illustrations are clear and informative. With an adult's help, younger readers will be stimulated to look carefully at the nest building in their own neighborhoods and to learn about what happens inside each egg.

My 5 year old son and I found this to be a very enjoyable book. I appreciate this book because it is so informative, yet reads more like a story than a textbook. The story begins in the Spring as the robin builds her nest and lays her eggs. It continues as the eggs hatch, and the birds grow up. The story closes as the birds leave in late September and explains that they will return the next Spring. I feel this "Full Circle" approach is very helpful to young learners. All throughout the book this story uses new words for children to learn and very naturally weaves the definitions into the story. The illustrations are a tremendous asset as they help to reinforce the new words. There are several processes shown step by step such as the development within an egg and the building of a nest. They are clearly and delightfully explained and also very well illustrated. I sometimes come across a children's book that captures my attention, yet fails to interest my son. What value does such a book have it it fails to reach the audience it was written for? I find this is not the problem with "A Nest Full of Eggs" as it is entertaining for both adults and children, while having the substance adults would like to teach to children. It is written for children yet does not talk down to them. This book is a part of a larger series called,"Let's read and Find out Science". I have also enjoyed reading others in the series and would highly recommend investigating this series.

Format: Paperback
I don't even know how this book got into our small collection, but my almost 4 yr old daughter was immediately captivated by the story-like narrative of how robins make a nest, lay eggs, develop, hatch and learn to fly. Also, it shows the feather of about 20 birds, pictures of them around the world, about 8 different eggs and 10 different places birds make nests (including a floating nest!) I thought these lists/iterations would leave her bored, but now I can't get past them. She wants to know them all and tries to guess when I ask her which is which. I am very impressed by the simplicity of the narrative and illustrations in this book - perfect for little minds to keep focused on. I will be looking out for other books in this series.

A great book to use in the spring in classrooms. Great for supplemental material for a unit on birds or the life cycle of animals. Great illustrations and text. A must-have book for home or school.

I have purchased several of these science books for our twin 4-year old grandchildren and they love each one of them. The books are written to accommodate their level of understanding and are colorfully pleasing as well.

Very well balanced book. A child may not be ready for all of the information or may want more than is in this book. Everything about this books very well presented. It has both bird watching and the children having and using other bird books, pictures collecting feathers.If too early having the book will encourage later use. The information is all useful and basic. Letting the reader know he can leave nesting materials but to allow space is healthy and fun. The comparisons are informative and may increase respect through understanding.I can be a starting point with birds or a doorway to science.

I love science books for young kids and this is a great one. My 2 year old loves the pictures and is starting to understand what is inside of those eggs.

Excellent pictures, soft cover so easy to transport if you are traveling, age appropriate science behind eggs and nests. We have bird feeders in our back yard and use this book to reinforce the science we are observing in our backyard.
