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.
