One totally funny thing about all the kids' books I just read Luisa to get her to sleep is how many of them (a full 3/5, I think?) have an annoying or feckless female character whose dissatisfaction and resultant carping are dealt with in one way or another by the male opposite number. But the female character in this turns out to be nice after all, and they meet life's challenged together and realize their old home was the best after all and have a bb and end up happy. My sister loved this book when she was younger. and now I can see why!more
It's true, I am a HUGE P.D. Eastman fan, but I don't think I'm being overly biased when I say this is a GOOD book. I just don't get tired of reading it and I love the distinctive illustrations. Mr. and Mrs. Bird, well really just Mrs. Bird, get tired of the their old nest and set out in search of a new one. A series of mishaps ensues and they eventually end up back in their old - and now beloved - nest.more
