This book is a perfect introduction to birds, with an emphasis how birds build nests, how chicks develop inside eggs, and how birds care for their young. The "story" follows a family of robins, but a variety of other birds/nests is also introduced. One thing that distinguishes this book from other informational science/nature books is that the pictures are gentle, high-quality illustrations, not photographs. This makes it feel more like a story and less like a "mini-textbook," which I actually find really nice. My son enjoyed this book and has learned a lot from it; I think he will get even more out of it over the next few years as he begins to process the information more deeply.
