Children delight in birds, and the author has, as usual captured the world of a child in this simple and sweet story. The basis of the tale is a disatisfied female bird, Mrs Bird. She is unhappy with her nest and wishes for another, better one. The story proceeds to show how Mr Bird attempts to find her the perfect one, and how she almost loses him, in the end to discover that her nest is actually best. A good story to teach gratitude and contentment with ones lot. Could also be used as a story for a complaining child, though not Biblical at all. Whimsical drawings.
