A Round of Robins

(1) K-3 Illustrated by Sergio Ruzzier. Sixteen brief, informative, highly entertaining, and easy-to-read poems follow robin parents as they raise two sets of babies. Ruzzier's personality-filled and amusing pen-and-ink and watercolor pictures feature correct bird anatomy, with details and poses that are comically reminiscent of humans. Individual poems stand alone, but the book is also short and lively enough for a full read-through.
