Once Upon A Book ~ In The Nest



In The Nest by Anna Milbourne

Summary: This gentle story explains how birds nurture their young. The book follows the first days and weeks in a nest of young birds as they learn to fly, feed themselves, and gain their independence. It’s a fairly fast read, perfect for a bedtime story!

Bible Verse

“Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?”  Matthew 6:26
