Mama built a little nest

Book Cover
Average Rating
Beach Lane Books,
Pub. Date:
First edition.
A delightful exploration of the incredibly variety of nests birds build for their babies, illustrated by a Caldecott Honoree. Mama built a little nest inside a sturdy trunk. She used her beak to tap-tap-tap the perfect place to bunk. There are so many different kinds of birds--and those birds build so many different kinds of nests to keep their babies cozy. With playful, bouncy rhyme, Jennifer Ward explores nests large and small, silky and cottony, muddy and twiggy--and all the birds that call them home!
