Sixteen fresh and funny poems welcome a new batch of robins to the world!
Food Fight Jumble, jostle, rumble, squirm; Dad has landed with a worm. Game of tug-of-war begins-- Biggest bossy baby wins.
Mama's a skillful architect, constructing a sturdy nest, while Dad's a champion turf defender. And those hatchlings! Such fluffs of plump perfection!
Katie Hesterman's vibrant verse celebrates this awesome circle of bird life, as we follow a pair of robin parents from nest-building and egg-laying, to raising their hungry hatchlings, and finally sending off their flying fledglings. Sergio Ruzzier's brilliant, candy-colored art pays tribute to all these stages of a robin's life cycle, reminding us that while robins may be common, they are also extraordinary!--from the publisher
