Product Details


A familiar cumulative rhyme pattern here describes the activities of a pair of wrens from nest construction through incubation and hatching of eggs to the fledging of their offspring. Nesting birds are a popular picture-book subject, but this appreciative account stands out both for its descriptive language and its evocative illustrations…All in all, a delightfully readable and informative wrendition.
—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

This absolutely delightful rhyming bird book, patterned on the poem ‘The House That Jack Built,’ is fun to read aloud and incredibly detailed in both words and pictures. With perfect back matter on wrens and their nests, it’s a winner all around. Hurrah for the wrens!
—Jane Yolen, author of Owl Moon, You Nest Here with Me, and An Egret’s Day

This is an excellent informational picture book to read to kindergarten or first grade classes as a delightful, accessible introduction to the nest-building behavior of birds.
—School Library Journal

Warmed with muted colors, the precise, crosshatched drawings use natural forms and curving lines to create scenes with hidden details for children to discover. A beautiful picture book.
