Even an Ostrich Needs a Nest

Kelly, Irene. Even an Ostrich Needs a Nest. Holiday House: 2009. ISBN: 97800823421022.

Even an Ostrich Needs a Nest, by Irene Kelly, is a nonfiction book about different types of birds and their nests. The book gives information on how many different types of birds make their nests and what they make it out of. The artwork is made up of water colors, acrylic paint, and pen drawings. The pictures are neat and pretty realistic. And the bright colors really pop out when you open the book. I like the book because of the descriptions and the neatness of the artwork. I liked the page with all the seabirds on it, because if fills the page and the birds were really interesting. I would recommend this to anyone who wants an easy read or a younger kid learning to read that likes eggs.
