Nest by Jorey Hurley
Robins are a welcome sign of spring, and this simple picture book is a wonderful way to explore these birds with your child. Hurley writes just one word per two-page illustration, taking the reader from nest, to egg, to flight, then back to nest again. Talk with your child about what robins do each season as you read together. What things do you like to do in spring, summer, fall and winter? Identify the letters you see on each page and talk about the season each picture portrays. Look out your window and see if you spy a robin. Talking together is a great way to increase vocabulary and gets your child ready to read!
