The Nest by Anna Milbourne


The Nest by Anna Milbourne

An evocative artist-led picture book superbly illustrated by international illustrator Laurence Cleyet-Merle. The gently descriptive yet informative text takes the form of a story which explains how birds nurture their young. The tale follows the first days and weeks in a nest of young birds as they learn to fly, feed themselves and gain their independence. The lyrical text introduces children to nature in an evocative way, encouraging both a sense of wonder about the natural world and a respect for nature.
