This book was really interesting. We learned all about the development of a robin's egg. There were some great pictures which showed the various stages of growth inside the egg. All my kids ended up standing directly in front of me, jostling to get closer. We learned a lot that we didn't know. I thought it might be 'too young' for my 3rd graders but there was enough new information that they stayed focused and interested.

It was not an in-depth look, but it was a good one. I'd use this book again

In this informational picture book, readers follow the images of two young kids as they learn about the life cycle of a robin, from nest to egg to hatchling to flight! Pricilla Belz Jenkins has made the cycle seem so simple and easy to comprehend, making it readable for a child as young as first grade. The illustrations are what really make this book, though. Lizzy Rockwell gives life to this book by using a realistic style of art, while also keeping it cutsey and fun. The implementation of deta ...more

This book is about the life cycle of a bird, including how one forms within the egg, how a baby bird is taken care of, and how a bird leaves home to live on their own. This is not only illustrated in a way that attracts children, but has a good amount of information that can give them a good overview of how birds form within eggs and live their lives. Can be used when talking about science, nature, and observing birds. Can even be used when having eggs in the classroom as a science experiment.

Recommends it for: parents reading with their children
This is a fun and informative book about robins and other birds. The life cycle is described and the stages of life while in the egg are depicted. The illustrations are colorful and full of details and the narrative is interesting, with just enough information to keep a child's interest.
Stage 1 of "Let's Read and Find Out Science" non-fiction title about robins. Flowing text reads more like a picture book than non-fiction. Provides quite a lot of information about varieties of birds beyond robins.
Reading Rainbow Episode: "Chickens Aren't the Only Ones"
We own this one and have read it MANY times since toddlerhood. Lots of illustrations so it is still worth looking at with my eight year old.
I thought this book was great. It has detailed drawings and lots of good information for a young child interested in baby birds. Nakyla loves looking at all the pictures of the eggs and the baby birds.
My book is missing the last page, (used book purchase) so if anyone could tell me what the text on it says I'd greatly appreciate it!

These science books aren't perfect for intended age group, but a good starting point for teaching.
