Robins! How They Grow Up by Eileen Christelow*

This over-sized picture book shares a lot of facts about a common bird.  I learned a few new facts too!
Many illustrations on each depict the facts well.  Throughout the book , on the bottom of the page, two juvenile robins make comments about the facts.  Their comments, at times, end some humor.
*Highly recommend.
-Borrowed from the library.
Caution: Ms. Christelow does not shy away from the harsh facts of robins being eaten (a crow eats one of the eggs before it hatches; a hawk snatches the two juvenile's brother!).
Text features: glossary, additional fact page, sources
