Happy Mother's Day ~ You Nest Here with Me; Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple with Illustrations by Melissa Sweet



Happy Mother's Day to all the women who have made a difference in the life a child.  I hope your day is special.  Yesterday my daughter and I celebrated by having lunch and driving to the outlet mall and doing a little shopping.  It was nice to be able to talk without distrations of little ones.  Today, my husband gave my Amazon giftcards from the "cats" - how purrfect!! This afternoon I'll get to spend time with my son, daughter and their spouses and of course my 3 adorable granddaughters -- life is good.

I bought this NEW and lovely book for Mother's Day for both my daughter and daughter in-law.  Its's a gorgeous book with a story perfect for mom's and her little ones.

You Nest Here with Me; Jane Yolen and Heidi Stemple

Boyds Mill Press - 2015

I bought (2) copies of this book for my daughter and daughter in-law for Mother's Day. It's a lovely book to read to little ones at bedtime and has all the elements that makes for a perfect delight for the pre-school set.  With rhyming verse, outstanding colorful illustrations, each page depicts a different type of bird (14) different species, their babies and pictures of where different birds like to build their nests.  It teaches young children about the nesting habits of different birds and reinforces to the child that "their nest is at home with their mom". This book is a definite keeper for your permanent collection. There is also a 2-page section at the end of the book that gives a picture and detailed information of various kinds of birds. The talented authors are a mother and daughter team from Massachusetts.
