MAMA BUILT A LITTLE NEST
by Jennifer Ward
illustrated by Steve Jenkins
Beach Lane Books, 2014
Starred Review, Publishers Weekly - "Ward and Jenkins show the beautiful variety of bird nests found around the world. Each jaunty, lilting four-line poem describes a type of nest. . . . Jenkins' gorgeous, remarkably realistic illustrations fill each spread and show the birds and nests in lively, species-specific detail. . . . Young bird-lovers will adore this cozy, illuminating look into avian habitats."
Starred Review, Booklist - "Jenkins's (Animals Upside Down) signature paper collages handsomely illustrate this inviting read about bird nest variety.... Families using this as a bedtime book will appreciate the snug ending: "You have a nest--your very own!/ A place to rest your head/ with pillows soft and cozy thoughts--/ your nest is called a bed!"
School Library Journal - "A practically perfect science picture book"
