This story is about two children noticing that all of the birds around them were making different noises except the bird in the nesting tree. The children are very curious and cannot figure out what is wrong with the nesting bird. At the end of the book the children discover that the bird was sitting on her eggs, and now the babies have hatched.

The theme of this book to explore and ask questions. It is important for children to know the importance of asking questions and being observant. The illustrations had a cut and paste look to it, which made it eye catching. I also like that at the end of the book there were facts about birds.

A fun read to any kids that is interested in birds. Pak's illustrations capture the simpleness of the birds life and the excitement that come with eggs in a nest.I remember being small and seeing robins nesting their eggs, it was just how the book described it. The Q&A with the bird at the end was a very creative way to put some real information about robins in the book.

a book with nice art and rhyming verse that gives information about birds.

In this book, we hear all the different bird calls in counterpoint to the pervasive quiet of a mama bird waiting for her eggs to hatch. Fun and informative back matter takes the shape of an interview so that readers learn more right from the bird's bill.

All of the birds in the trees are making noises except the nesting bird who is silent. The two children listen to all of the other birds, but never hear the nesting bird. Until, one morning, another nesting bird comes flying in and they see a new baby nesting bird has been born.
