Named a Best Children's Science Book of the Year by Science Books & Films, this classic picture book follows a full year of growth and change for robins: how the birds develop inside their eggs during the spring; how they mature into fledglings in the summer; how they learn to fly in the fall; and how they leave for warmer climates in winter—only to return when spring comes around again.
Now rebranded with a new cover look, this book features rich vocabulary and beautiful spreads detailing different bird habitats and feather types. Both text and artwork were vetted for accuracy by Dr. Charles Walcott, Professor Emeritus of Neurobiology and Behavior and former director of the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology.
This is a Level 1 Let's-Read-and-Find-Out, which means the book explores introductory concepts perfect for children in the primary grades and supports the Common Core Learning Standards and Next Generation Science Standards. Let's-Read-and-Find-Out is the winner of the American Association for the Advancement of Science/Subaru Science Books & Films Prize for Outstanding Science Series.

A young boy with a robin's nest outside his bedroom window provides a simple description of each stage, from the building of the nest to the young birds' first ventures from home. Illustrations in pencil and watercolor clearly depict the robins and the enthusiastic young birder and his friends. A brief description of the different nests built by other birds is included in this attractive introduction. Copyright 1998 Horn Book Guide Reviews

PreS-Gr 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.
