  2. Mrs Bird was too choosy and Mr Bird was kind enough to go for all the troubles for their family Sugary story, I would say Their dress up was amazing


  3. I ve just had a hilarious time reading other reviews on this book a couple were sad because there s not much love in this book, another was upset with the use of the word hate because it s a banned word in her household, several criticised Mrs Bird while others excused her because we all know pregnant women are touchy OOPS, spoiler , one told us what Mr Bird should have done instead of giving in to Mrs Bird s displeasure I think I enjoyed these reviews almost as much as I enjoy the book.Zenobia [...]

  6. I sunk myself in this book The life lessons this book gives are priceless The biggest lesson is this Do not listen to your nagging wife I think I speak for most men on this What the bird should have done is re model the birdhouse, put in a sports den and wet bar Then his buds could come over and hang The wife bird would have been wise to make snacks and keep the birdhouse clean I hope the author writes a sequel to this book where the dad bird tells her to find her own place, then turns the birdh [...]

  15. The Best Nest is better than P.D Eastman s other classic children s book, Go, Dogs, Go Nonetheless, it isn t in any way superlative It s a modestly humorous story, with serviceable text and serviceable pictures Competent, and nothing I think most adults reading it would have to conclude that this is not a work of love, not a work that meant much personally to the author, not a work of great thought nor effort nor inspiration, but something that was quickly cranked out in a formulaic kind of wa [...]


  16. Mrs Bird decides that their current nest is not the best and Mr and Mrs Bird go off in search of a new place to build a nest They have a couple of mishaps and eventually end up back at their original nest This one isn t quite as much fun as some of P.D Eastman s other books, but still a cute picture book for young children.


  17. Let me just start off by saying how cool it is that P.D Eastman started writing through his collaboration with Dr Seuss Just like Dr Seuss, P.D Eastman captured the essence of rhyming with grace in The Best Nest I thought that the take away message of appreciating what you already have and that the home is where the heart was such a beautiful message to deliver We sometimes forget to appreciate the little things and take them for granted and I think that the moral of this story is something we s [...]

  20. This book is about a couple of birds who decide to move from their bird house to another home They try out all types of homes, and none of them seem to work out They eventually end up back in their old home because it s the best nest This would be a good book to use when talking about different places people live It would be fun to look at all of the different places the birds visit and to look at all of the different types of homes people live in and compare and contrast all of them.
