Worth a Second Look: Children's Book Edition - THE BEST NEST by P.D. Eastman

Title: The Best Nest
Author: P.D. Eastman
Publisher: Random House, Beginner Books
Date: 1968

Romance.  A tragic tale of love and loss and finding the strength to overcome the odds for the one you love.

While searching for a better life, Mr. and Mrs. Bird eventually come to learn that the grass isn't always greener on the other side and secrets are best kept being told. 

If only Mr. Bird would have known the reason for Mrs. Bird's overly high expectations in their search for a new home, maybe Mr. Bird wouldn't have considered an old boot as a viable option.  Poor Mr. Bird, he tried.

BBP (Bare Bum Pic): Birds don't wear clothes, so, Yes.

The Art: Classic and easily recognizable P.D. Eastman.  Bright colors and small town landscaping give the book a cozy, hometown feel; definitely worth a second look.
