Robins! How They Grow Up

Robins! How They Grow Up by Eileen Christelow is full of interesting tidbits like the fact millions of male robins migrate north weeks ahead of the females so they can establish a prime nesting spot. If you have ever wondered why they build nests everywhere but the nearest tree it’s because they are early arrivers and not enough trees have protective leaf cover. The life cycle is clearly described; all readers will be impressed that baby robins eat 14 feet of worms and 350 insects in two weeks! The watercolors are superb. (Non-Fiction)
