Om författaren

Eileen Christelow was born in Washington, D.C., on April 22, 1943. As a child, books were a huge part of Christelow's life: they were always presents for her birthday and Christmas, as well as when she was sick. Much of her childhood was spent reading and rereading them. In high school, Christelow visa mer wrote stories for the school magazine, and planned on majoring in English in college. Instead, when Christelow entered her freshman year at college she became interested in art history and eventually found her true passion in photography. Christelow received her B.A. degree from the University of Pennsylvania in 1965, and soon after she began photographing buildings for architects and shooting photo essays on urban life for small magazines. While earning a living as a photographer and graphic designer, Christelow began experimenting with writing and illustrating children's picture books. Her first published book, Henry and the Red Stripes, was inspired by a poster she created for a science museum. Many of Christelow's books, including Don't Wake Up Mama!, Five Little Monkeys Sitting in a Tree, and Henry and the Dragon, have been named Children's Choice Books of the Year by the Children's Book Council and the International Reading Association. A member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators, Christelow has published over a dozen books and her photographs have appeared in publications such as Home, Progressive Architecture, and the New York Times Book Review.

Narrative text describes robins' migration and nesting habits, while a pair of young robins (you can tell by their speckles) chime in with speech bubbles. Comics panels effectively use sequential art (e.g. a nest being built, an egg hatching), and the layout of each page is dynamic and easy to follow. The story follows the baby birds' life through the first weeks and months, describing what they eat, the dangers they face, and how they learn to fly.

Realistic born-digital illustrations show robins at every stage (egg, baby, fledgling, adult) and their environments.

Back matter includes an author's note, glossary, "more about robins" in Q&A format, and sources. Well researched and beautifully presented; on the longer side, best for older readers (not toddlers).
