    I think I’ve now read all the books (to date) in this series. They are An Egg Is Quiet and A Seed Is Sleepy and A Rock Is Lively and A Butterfly Is Patient. I gave them all 5 stars. I liked A Beetle Is Shy a bit less but I still gave it 4 stars. This one was a 5 star book for me. It follows the format of the other books. There are gorgeous pictures that can be enjoyed by all ages.

This one was a 5 star book for me. It follows the format of the other books. There are gorgeous pictures that can be enjoyed by all ages. There is a poem that runs the length of the book, and while there is advanced vocabulary I think it can be enjoyed by preschoolers. Then throughout the book there is information heavy text, for independent readers or reading aloud to 5-11 years old, and all the way up for all ages. I’d expected this book to be about birds, but it’s about all sorts of animals that have nests or use nests, including, honeybees, fox squirrels, the cactus wren, the ruby-throated hummingbird, the American alligator, the elf owl, the African gray tree frog, the orangutan, the American flamingo, the army ant, the bluejay, the Kemp’s Ridley sea turtle, and several others. I learned a lot. In fact, I knew little of the detailed information presented. This is a gift worthy book, as are all the books in this series. The pictures are glorious and the information is interesting for anyone who is fascinated by nature. The illustrations and the text portions stand on their own and can both be enjoyed separately, but together they’re magic. They’re really special. I’m hoping that there will be more books in this series. There is practically unlimited subject matter for future books, and I’m eager to read any and all that might be illustrated and written. What a talented illustrator and author team!!!

    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!

    A poetic, lovingly illustrated picture book that is full of fascinating information sure to be new to adult and young readers, alike. Who knew that army ants form 'living nests' to protect their eggs, or that orangutans braid beds of branches up in the rainforest canopy? The detailed pictures and text will reward multiple re-readings. I especially appreciate Dianna Hutts Aston's sophisticated (but never verbose) writing, as there is plenty of new vocabulary to discuss with young readers.

    Why I liked this book- This is a great book for this time of year! First off the illustrations are something you could look at for hours. They are so detailed and informative. I really like that the book doesn’t focus on bird’s nests (which is what I thought it was going to be) but has ALL kinds of nests. Bees, alligators, platypus and more! The book is educational and entertaining. I can see teachers and parents using this book to talk about ecosystems and biodiversity. *NOTE* I got a free copy Why I liked this book- This is a great book for this time of year!

    This is an interesting book about animal nests. It actually reminds me somewhat of We Build Our Homes , although it has less text and information, so it could perhaps be more suitable for younger audiences. The labelled illustrations are lovely and clearly show the creatures in their unique nests. Everything from fish to birds to primates is covered here.

I would recommend this is book as a starting place for learning about nests, especially for younger kids. But those who want to learn more should also check out We Build Our Homes.

    A nest is noisy. It is a nursery of chirp-chirping...buzzing...squeaking...peep-peeping...bubbling...babies. I loved it.

    Spectacular illustrations highlight this look at nests - from wasps to prairie dogs to alligators. I particularly liked the birds' nests. From the smallest - a golf ball-sized bee hummingbird's nest - to the largest - the 36-foot mound built by the dusky scrubfowl. My favorite was the close-up of a nest containing shoelaces, gum wrappers and a snake's skin. It reminds me of the one I found in the yard last year that was lined with my dog's shed fur.

    I never knew one of the largest nests belongs to the dusky scrubfowl and can measure more than 36 feet. This book is filled with many facts that may go unnoticed and unknown. I learned more about how different animals create safe nests for their young.

Furthermore each book in the series can also be read in two different formats thus allowing the reading audience to be broadened out. If you have very young readers or those who cannot sit still long enough for a book whether it is since of too much information or just length than you can read the descriptive for each page while avoiding all the smaller more emphasized information that is given for the page. And for those who are interested or can keep their attention focused than the whole page can be read and explored. The illustrations are bright and colorful but doesn't distract at all from the information provided. Instead each illustration is given in the right detail while the species name is provided so you aren't sitting there trying to figure out which one of the millions you are looking at. This same thought and consideration is included on the front and back pages where in the case of the former and the butterfly book you were given a chance to see the caterpillar than on the back pages were the evolved butterflies. This was truly a great idea for writing a nonfiction novel that allows children a chance to explore such big subjects while without being too overwhelming.

    The book, A Nest Is Noisy, illustrates diverse nests in nature and its owners who lay eggs. The first thought in my mind when I looked at the book cover was that the book portrayed birds’ nests since birds lay eggs. That is, my mind set was limited to the birds because they lay eggs and need to build nests. However, this book tells readers that some mammals also lay eggs, and they also construct nests as a place for eggs to hatch.

That is, my mind set was limited to the birds because they lay eggs and need to build nests. However, this book tells readers that some mammals also lay eggs, and they also construct nests as a place for eggs to hatch. Detailed descriptions of each animal also provide rich information to understand the shapes and locations of the nests. Beginning with the front endpapers, readers see a variety of nests and the back endpapers illustrate the animals of each nest. Meticulous Illustrations support readers’ interpretations of the materials of the nests. This book does not provide resources of the described information nor a glossary of vocabulary. One concern I have in reading this book is regarding the captions in the illustrations. The name of each animal is added in the illustration, but the place of the caption could cause confusion of the name of the animal. For instance, some captions are underneath a branch or a nest instead of the animal. Without arrow symbols indicating directions to pay attention or make a connections, readers who start to learn English or are not familiar with the name of birds may misinterpret the captions as the name of the nest.

    I can hardly describe what a joy ran through my veins as soon as I opened this book. It is gorgeous! Absolutely gorgeous to look at! The illustrations are absolutely beautiful. The colors are rich, the variety of shapes and forms and lines, the composition and the manner with which everything is put is tremendous! Apart from its undeniable visual beauty, this is a great read. It explores nature in an honest and simple manner, poetic but still very much informative.

For everyone who loves nature this is a treat. Though not only for enthusiasts, this is also a book to compel anyone to the wonders of nature. It entices us to be more conscious of our surroundings and shows how much we take for granted. The details in a nest can be surprising, their different shapes and sizes and the animals that construct them as well. Instantly, upon my very first pages, I knew it was going up to my favorites shelf.

    A single word or simple sentence per page describes a nest, surrounded by pictures of nests that exemplify that trait, usually with another paragraph or two about each individual nest and the type of animal or bug that builds it.

No content issues, one bird is mentioned diving into termites nests to crack them open with their heads and occasionally killing themselves, but this isn't shown.

    Nest is noisy... Buzzing, swishing, flapping, and humming with babies... but only until they are ready to fly, swim, or crawl away Then the nest is quite.. Miss my nest sooooo much! I wonder how quite my nest now =( I love this book, the children can learn different types of nest and how the animals live differently. It's amazing to learn from animals how built their comfy and safe home. Also the illustration is wonderful❤❤❤ Can't hardly wait to read other series of these books

    This is yet another astonishingly informative and breathtaking books in a series that every family, classroom, and child should know. The illustrations are both scientifically detailed and accurately labeled, but also aesthetically delightful and provoke curiosity and awe. Thee are no limits here on species or location, spanning many biomes, wide expanses of geography, and also relationships between family members and among animal groups.

    I love children's books where the adult can learn something along with the child. This series does not disappoint. In addition to the interesting text, it is full of beautiful and detailed illustrations that will captivate and educate readers in a visual way. Great as a picture book for young children or as an early elementary NF resource.

    Nests do not just belong to birds, and this poetic celebration of nests does justice to the topic, including such unusual and interesting nest-users as platypus, ant, sea turtle, lamprey, frog, orangutan and alligator. Interesting facts are delivered in the most beautiful prose (but I did spot one typo!), and illustrations are lovely. Sure to keep any nature-loving youngster spellbound.

    The illustrations add depth and interest. Children can spend a great deal of time studying them for hidden details. They’ll enjoy a game of “I Spy” if they are challenged to look for tiny details. Readers will see the many commonalities as well as differences in how various animals prepare for parenthood.

    This is a great informal non-fiction book with lots of pictures about animals that children from primary to mid- elementary grade levels may enjoy. It introduces many different species of animals that make a nest for their young, where they are made, what they are made of, and what conditions they are kept in.

    Adrith Bicchieri

    This picture book is filled with gorgeous art in the style of botanical drawings and lots of great information for curious young minds about different kinds of nests. The content is a little bit wordy for storytime purposes, but I would love to share this book with a child in a one-on-one setting.

    Jo Oehrlein

    Best for mid-elementary and up. There's an overarching simple "story" through the book, but be aware that it's written in cursive. The fun is in the details (which are printed) about all the animals (including many non-birds) that have nests and what those nests are like.

    This book is AWESOME. I love that there are more animals besides birds included in this collection of nests. The end papers are neat; the beginning is the nests, the end is the babies that come out of the nest.

    A wonderful celebration of, and introduction to, the incredible life that's going on all around us. Adults and children will learn something and will gain a deeper appreciation of how many different types of animals nurture and protect the next generation.
