The Best Nest by P.D. Eastman
Oh, how I love this book! This is one of my childhood favorites, and I love that my kids enjoy it now! Mrs. Bird is expecting a baby, and decides she wants a new home. She and Mr. Bird travel everywhere looking for a new house. They find a few they like, but they are already occupied, and they have some close calls. Finally, it begins to rain and Mr. and Mrs. Bird get separated. They are sad and wonder if they'll ever see each other again. The sky is filled with lightning and thunder, and suddenly Mr. Bird crashes into something! What is it? Well, you'll have to read to find out!
This is a beginning reader, and my first grader can read it well. It's a fun, fun read-aloud, and it's a great silent read because it is easy enough for the beginners to read. It's fun to guess where the birds will end up, and it's fun to see the places they thought would be good homes. I love the illustrations and I love that the kids love reading it. Next time you're at the library or a book store, check this one out, you won't be disappointed!
