A nest is noisy

A Nest Is Noisy - Dianna Hutts Aston, Sylvia Long
by Dianna Hutts Aston
Illustrated by Sylvia Long

Did you know cave swiflets make their nests using only their saliva?
And that lampreys make their nest underwater using pebbles as tiny as an almond and as big as a golf ball? And that they carry the pebbles in their mouths?
Did you ever heard of a nest as big as 36 x 16 feet?
And what about the temperature of the nest determining the sex of the baby alligators?
This book is a perfect combination of science, animals and lovely illustrations. And when I say lovely, I mean it!

Age range: 6 to 12 years old.

Other books is the series we have read: A rock is lively
