Secrets of the Nest

by Joan Dunning

This is a beautiful book. I stumbled across it browsing library shelves once, and now it's one I dream to own someday. The exquisite illustrations drew me in, but the writing is just as fantastic. It's all about the different types of nests birds build: how they do it, where they make them, how they raise and defend their young. You learn a lot more about birds and their habits than just their nests in the course of the book, but it all revolves around their homes. I found it fascinating and delightful. A wonderful book that any nature-lover would treasure.

Rating: 5/5 ........ 198 pages, 1994

Ooh, we were just talking about cardinals today, and how long they take to nest and hatch. We had a cardinal in our hedge. So my daughter looked it up. This book would be perfect though. Thanks so much for reviewing this, Jeanne!
