Sometimes I'll notice a book trend that seems utterly random.  And one I've noticed recently is . . . robins.  Yep, the bird.  And since our music-themed summer reading is about to begin (and The Jackson 5 song Rockin' Robins has been stuck in my head), I decided to share this trend with you guys!

Robins!: How They Grow Up by Eileen Christelow
J  598.8  CHR
Robins are the most familiar and beloved of all birds, found throughout North America and celebrated as one of the first signs of spring. But there's a lot about them that most people don’t know! In this visually stunning picture book that features comic-book panels combined with painterly illustrations, Eileen Christelow tells the story of two young robins’ first year, and reveals plenty of little-known facts that are sure to captivate young naturalists.

A Round of Robins by Katie Hesterman
E  HEW  NEW BOOK
Mama's a skillful architect, constructing a sturdy nest, while Dad's a champion turf defender. And those hatchlings! Such fluffs of plump perfection!   Katie Hesterman's vibrant verse celebrates this awesome circle of bird life, as we follow a pair of robin parents from nest-building and egg-laying, to raising their hungry hatchlings, and finally sending off their flying fledglings. Sergio Ruzzier's brilliant, candy-colored art pays tribute to all these stages of a robin's life cycle, reminding us that while robins may be common, they are also extraordinary!

This Is the Nest That Robin Built by Denise Fleming
E  FLE  NEW BOOK
This cumulative collage picture book is from a Caldecott Honor recipient.  Robin is building a nest, and her friends are ready to help! The squirrel trims the twigs. The dog brings the string. The horse shares his straw. And then a surprise gatefold spread reveals how Robin knits them all together to make a safe and cozy home for her babies.
