&;These illustrations, in their stylized beauty . . . highlight the text&;s focus on science. The entire reading experience indeed heralds a &;beautiful day.&; &;&; The Horn Book (starred review)
It&;s time for Bird to build her nest! Follow her as she pulls a worm out of the ground, lifts some twigs that are just the right size, and pushes the twigs into place. Uh-oh &; one of the twigs falls to the ground! But after a day of hard work, Bird&;s nest is ready and waiting. Can you guess what it&;s waiting for? Using simple, clear language and beautiful illustrations, this engaging story is the perfect introduction to physical forces for very young readers. A final spread with some simple questions promotes discussion with parents, teachers, or caregivers and encourages readers to think about the concepts introduced.
