From celebrated author-illustrator Henry Cole comes a beautifully classic picture book that follows a robin’s journey as it makes its perfect nest in a tree, raises its young, and protects them from natural dangers. Perfect for parents and teachers to share with young children to introduce beginning life science concepts.
In this black-and-white picture book highlighted with robin’s egg blue, the reader will follow two robins as they build a nest with twigs and grass. Then mother robin lays four beautiful blue eggs and will keep the eggs warm in the nest until they hatch into four baby robins.
The father robin protects the babies until they can fly on their own. The perils the babies encounter are many, including snakes and storms. The nest is always their safe place.
