    I think I?ve now read all the books (to date) in this series. They are An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy and A Rock Is Lively and A Butterfly Is Patient. I gave them all 5 stars. I liked A Beetle Is Shy a bit less but I still gave it 4 stars. This one was a 5 star book for me....

    Did you know cave swiflets make their nests using only their saliva? And that lampreys make their nest underwater using pebbles as tiny as an almond and as big as a golf ball? And that they carry the pebbles in their mouths? Did you ever heard of a nest as big as 36 x 16 feet? And w...

    Beautiful book, really interesting facts and lovely illustrations. Ideal for children who are interested in the natural world. ...

    This continuing series is absolutely delightful. ...

    A poetic, lovingly illustrated picture book that is full of fascinating information sure to be new to adult and young readers, alike. Who knew that army ants form 'living nests' to protect their eggs, or that orangutans braid beds of branches up in the rainforest canopy? The detail...

    A nest is noisy. It is a nursery of chirp-chirping...buzzing...squeaking...peep-peeping...bubbling...babies. I loved it. ...

    Spectacular illustrations highlight this look at nests - from wasps to prairie dogs to alligators. I particularly liked the birds' nests. From the smallest - a golf ball-sized bee hummingbird's nest - to the largest - the 36-foot mound built by the dusky scrubfowl. My...

    Why I liked this book- This is a great book for this time of year! First off the illustrations are something you could look at for hours. They are so detailed and informative. I really like that the book doesn?t focus on bird?s nests (which is what I thought it was going to be) but...

    I never knew one of the largest nests belongs to the dusky scrubfowl and can measure more than 36 feet. This book is filled with many facts that may go unnoticed and unknown. I learned more about how different animals create safe nests for their young. ...

    This is one series that had my attention caught since of its descriptive title. Each book's title within the series gives the reader a chance to know what is being explored within the pages of the actual book while also providing the format of the book's writing, which is the "is ..."...

    The book, A Nest Is Noisy, illustrates diverse nests in nature and its owners who lay eggs. The first thought in my mind when I looked at the book cover was that the book portrayed birds? nests since birds lay eggs. That is, my mind set was limited to the birds because they lay eggs ...

    Nest is noisy... Buzzing, swishing, flapping, and humming with babies... but only until they are ready to fly, swim, or crawl away Then the nest is quite.. Miss my nest sooooo much! I wonder how quite my nest now =( I love this book, the children can learn different types ...

    Nests do not just belong to birds, and this poetic celebration of nests does justice to the topic, including such unusual and interesting nest-users as platypus, ant, sea turtle, lamprey, frog, orangutan and alligator. Interesting facts are delivered in the most beautiful prose (but I ...

    I love children's books where the adult can learn something along with the child. This series does not disappoint. In addition to the interesting text, it is full of beautiful and detailed illustrations that will captivate and educate readers in a visual way. Great as a picture book fo...

    This picture book is filled with gorgeous art in the style of botanical drawings and lots of great information for curious young minds about different kinds of nests. The content is a little bit wordy for storytime purposes, but I would love to share this book with a child in a one-...

    Best for mid-elementary and up. There's an overarching simple "story" through the book, but be aware that it's written in cursive. The fun is in the details (which are printed) about all the animals (including many non-birds) that have nests and what those nests are like. ...

    A wonderful celebration of, and introduction to, the incredible life that's going on all around us. Adults and children will learn something and will gain a deeper appreciation of how many different types of animals nurture and protect the next generation. ...

    This book is AWESOME. I love that there are more animals besides birds included in this collection of nests. The end papers are neat; the beginning is the nests, the end is the babies that come out of the nest. ...

    Adorable, and frankly, I learned a lot! ...

    We are really enjoying this whole series. The illustrations are wonderful. ...

    Love this series of books! They have lyrical language, beautiful illustrations, and interesting facts. ...

    Stunning, interesting and a book everyone should have on their shelves. I absolutely want to check out the rest of Dianna Hutts Aston's books. ...

    Talks about lots of different kinds of nests and includes really detailed illustrations. ...

    Best for mid-elementary and up. There's an overarching simple "story" through the book, but be aware that it's written in cursive. The fun is in the details (which are printed) about all the animals (including many non-birds) that have nests and what those nests are like. ...

    A wonderful celebration of, and introduction to, the incredible life that's going on all around us. Adults and children will learn something and will gain a deeper appreciation of how many different types of animals nurture and protect the next generation. ...

    This book is AWESOME. I love that there are more animals besides birds included in this collection of nests. The end papers are neat; the beginning is the nests, the end is the babies that come out of the nest. ...

    Adorable, and frankly, I learned a lot! ...

    We are really enjoying this whole series. The illustrations are wonderful. ...

    Love this series of books! They have lyrical language, beautiful illustrations, and interesting facts. ...

    Stunning, interesting and a book everyone should have on their shelves. I absolutely want to check out the rest of Dianna Hutts Aston's books. ...

    Talks about lots of different kinds of nests and includes really detailed illustrations. ...

    I liked this one more than the girls, but I think they will enjoy them more in a few years. ...

    I think I?ve now read all the books (to date) in this series. They are An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy and A Rock Is Lively and A Butterfly Is Patient. I gave them all 5 stars. I liked A Beetle Is Shy a bit less but I still gave it 4 stars. This one was a 5 star book for me....

    Did you know cave swiflets make their nests using only their saliva? And that lampreys make their nest underwater using pebbles as tiny as an almond and as big as a golf ball? And that they carry the pebbles in their mouths? Did you ever heard of a nest as big as 36 x 16 feet? And w...

    Did you know cave swiflets make their nests using only their saliva? And that lampreys make their nest underwater using pebbles as tiny as an almond and as big as a golf ball? And that they carry the pebbles in their mouths? Did you ever heard of a nest as big as 36 x 16 feet? And w...

    Beautiful book, really interesting facts and lovely illustrations. Ideal for children who are interested in the natural world. ...

    This continuing series is absolutely delightful. ...

    A poetic, lovingly illustrated picture book that is full of fascinating information sure to be new to adult and young readers, alike. Who knew that army ants form 'living nests' to protect their eggs, or that orangutans braid beds of branches up in the rainforest canopy? The detail...

    A nest is noisy. It is a nursery of chirp-chirping...buzzing...squeaking...peep-peeping...bubbling...babies. I loved it. ...

    Spectacular illustrations highlight this look at nests - from wasps to prairie dogs to alligators. I particularly liked the birds' nests. From the smallest - a golf ball-sized bee hummingbird's nest - to the largest - the 36-foot mound built by the dusky scrubfowl. My...

    Why I liked this book- This is a great book for this time of year! First off the illustrations are something you could look at for hours. They are so detailed and informative. I really like that the book doesn?t focus on bird?s nests (which is what I thought it was going to be) but...

    I never knew one of the largest nests belongs to the dusky scrubfowl and can measure more than 36 feet. This book is filled with many facts that may go unnoticed and unknown. I learned more about how different animals create safe nests for their young. ...

    This is one series that had my attention caught since of its descriptive title. Each book's title within the series gives the reader a chance to know what is being explored within the pages of the actual book while also providing the format of the book's writing, which is the "is ..."...

    The book, A Nest Is Noisy, illustrates diverse nests in nature and its owners who lay eggs. The first thought in my mind when I looked at the book cover was that the book portrayed birds? nests since birds lay eggs. That is, my mind set was limited to the birds because they lay eggs ...

    Nest is noisy... Buzzing, swishing, flapping, and humming with babies... but only until they are ready to fly, swim, or crawl away Then the nest is quite.. Miss my nest sooooo much! I wonder how quite my nest now =( I love this book, the children can learn different types ...

    Nests do not just belong to birds, and this poetic celebration of nests does justice to the topic, including such unusual and interesting nest-users as platypus, ant, sea turtle, lamprey, frog, orangutan and alligator. Interesting facts are delivered in the most beautiful prose (but I ...

    I love children's books where the adult can learn something along with the child. This series does not disappoint. In addition to the interesting text, it is full of beautiful and detailed illustrations that will captivate and educate readers in a visual way. Great as a picture book fo...

    This picture book is filled with gorgeous art in the style of botanical drawings and lots of great information for curious young minds about different kinds of nests. The content is a little bit wordy for storytime purposes, but I would love to share this book with a child in a one-...

    Best for mid-elementary and up. There's an overarching simple "story" through the book, but be aware that it's written in cursive. The fun is in the details (which are printed) about all the animals (including many non-birds) that have nests and what those nests are like. ...

    A wonderful celebration of, and introduction to, the incredible life that's going on all around us. Adults and children will learn something and will gain a deeper appreciation of how many different types of animals nurture and protect the next generation. ...

    This book is AWESOME. I love that there are more animals besides birds included in this collection of nests. The end papers are neat; the beginning is the nests, the end is the babies that come out of the nest. ...

    Adorable, and frankly, I learned a lot! ...

    We are really enjoying this whole series. The illustrations are wonderful. ...

    Love this series of books! They have lyrical language, beautiful illustrations, and interesting facts. ...

    Stunning, interesting and a book everyone should have on their shelves. I absolutely want to check out the rest of Dianna Hutts Aston's books. ...

    Talks about lots of different kinds of nests and includes really detailed illustrations. ...

    I liked this one more than the girls, but I think they will enjoy them more in a few years. ...

    Gorgeous illustrations and a wonderful look at all the different types of animals that make nests. ...

    Pretty and informative - I had to look up the second egg-laying mammal (it's an anteater). ...

    No necessarily for reading aloud and definitely not for storytime, this one is still beautiful with all kinds of great, accessible information and some beautiful illustrations. Highly recommended. ...

    Stunning illustrations and fascinating text makes this a must for young nature lovers! ...

    Nest is noisy... Buzzing, swishing, flapping, and humming with babies... but only until they are ready to fly, swim, or crawl away Then the nest is quite.. Miss my nest sooooo much! I wonder how quite my nest now =( I love this book, the children can learn different types ...

    Nests do not just belong to birds, and this poetic celebration of nests does justice to the topic, including such unusual and interesting nest-users as platypus, ant, sea turtle, lamprey, frog, orangutan and alligator. Interesting facts are delivered in the most beautiful prose (but I ...

    I love children's books where the adult can learn something along with the child. This series does not disappoint. In addition to the interesting text, it is full of beautiful and detailed illustrations that will captivate and educate readers in a visual way. Great as a picture book fo...

    This picture book is filled with gorgeous art in the style of botanical drawings and lots of great information for curious young minds about different kinds of nests. The content is a little bit wordy for storytime purposes, but I would love to share this book with a child in a one-...

    Best for mid-elementary and up. There's an overarching simple "story" through the book, but be aware that it's written in cursive. The fun is in the details (which are printed) about all the animals (including many non-birds) that have nests and what those nests are like. ...

    A wonderful celebration of, and introduction to, the incredible life that's going on all around us. Adults and children will learn something and will gain a deeper appreciation of how many different types of animals nurture and protect the next generation. ...

    This book is AWESOME. I love that there are more animals besides birds included in this collection of nests. The end papers are neat; the beginning is the nests, the end is the babies that come out of the nest. ...

    I think I?ve now read all the books (to date) in this series. They are An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy and A Rock Is Lively and A Butterfly Is Patient. I gave them all 5 stars. I liked A Beetle Is Shy a bit less but I still gave it 4 stars. This one was a 5 star book for me....

    Did you know cave swiflets make their nests using only their saliva? And that lampreys make their nest underwater using pebbles as tiny as an almond and as big as a golf ball? And that they carry the pebbles in their mouths? Did you ever heard of a nest as big as 36 x 16 feet? And w...

    Beautiful book, really interesting facts and lovely illustrations. Ideal for children who are interested in the natural world. ...

    This continuing series is absolutely delightful. ...

    A poetic, lovingly illustrated picture book that is full of fascinating information sure to be new to adult and young readers, alike. Who knew that army ants form 'living nests' to protect their eggs, or that orangutans braid beds of branches up in the rainforest canopy? The detail...

    A nest is noisy. It is a nursery of chirp-chirping...buzzing...squeaking...peep-peeping...bubbling...babies. I loved it. ...

    Spectacular illustrations highlight this look at nests - from wasps to prairie dogs to alligators. I particularly liked the birds' nests. From the smallest - a golf ball-sized bee hummingbird's nest - to the largest - the 36-foot mound built by the dusky scrubfowl. My...

    Why I liked this book- This is a great book for this time of year! First off the illustrations are something you could look at for hours. They are so detailed and informative. I really like that the book doesn?t focus on bird?s nests (which is what I thought it was going to be) but...

    I never knew one of the largest nests belongs to the dusky scrubfowl and can measure more than 36 feet. This book is filled with many facts that may go unnoticed and unknown. I learned more about how different animals create safe nests for their young. ...
