Mama Built a Little Nest by Jennifer Ward, illustrated by Steve Jenkins is another Jenkins marvel! Ward's rhyming verse gives the book a lovely lilt and Jenkins cut paper collage pictures show such accuracy in the next information. Although an informational text, it's a picture book that can be read aloud with the rhyming text or there is additional information on each spread for an older second or third grader to learn more. Science is always a fascinating subject, especially with children.
