The Robin Family

The Robin Family by Frances R. Horwich and Reinald Werrenrath, Jr. teaches children in a sweet and old-fashioned way much about bird observation and robins.  A little girl who loves visiting the park with her mother and baby brother is excited to see a robin in the grass and runs after it, but it flies away.  She quickly learns that she must watch the birds quietly from a distance and becomes intrigued as the robin builds a nest and raises a family of four chicks.  She is sad when she no longer sees the robins at the park, but is then overjoyed to see a robin visit outside of her own home.

Pros:  Since I have been teaching my children about birds recently, this book was a gentle introduction to bird watching.  

Cons: None.

Age Range: 2-7
