"Springtime is here. There is work to be done, as animal parents make nests for their young. Using pebbles, or woodchips, even mud, spit, and leaves-many creatures make nests…Whose nests are these?" So begins this spirited, rhyming, picture book that describes in riddle-form the many types of nests animals make, from the tiny ruby-throated hummingbird to the imposing sea turtle. "There are mammals and reptiles and insects who nest. Birds, too, build unique nests that suit them the best. Some nests provide shelter, and some are for show, but the best nests are those in which young babies grow!"
