Illustrated by Steve Jenkins.
Find out how several different species of birds build their nests.
What I thought: An interesting book that looks at one aspect of a bird's life--nesting. The extra facts on each page make Mama Built a Little Nest great for sharing with older children while the actual story is short enough to read to preschoolers at storytime. As always, I love Steve Jenkins' collage illustrations.
