This first look at robins follows a full year of growth and change: how the birds develop inside their egg during the spring, how they mature from chicks into fledglings in the summer, how they learn to fly in the fall, and how they leave for warmer climes in winter only to return when spring comes around again.

This book is a perfect introduction to birds, with an emphasis how birds build nests, how chicks develop inside eggs, and how birds care for their young. The "story" follows a family of robins, but a variety of other birds/nests is also introduced. One thing that distinguishes this book from other informational science/nature books is that the pictures are gentle, high-quality illustrations, not photographs. This makes it feel more like a story and less like a "mini-textbook," which I actually find really nice. My son enjoyed this book and has learned a lot from it; I think he will get even more out of it over the next few years as he begins to process the information more deeply.
