Ron Smith offers this straightforward and logical story in picture book format. Although I found the characters a little irritating and unlikeable, their antics could appeal to the younger set. The content meets some curriculum goals for science education in the younger years. The story could be used when learning about birds, life cycles, habitats, and personal growth.
