Fleming, Denise. This is the Nest That Robin Built. New York: Beach Lane Books, 2018.
I LOVE THIS BOOK! This Is The NEST That ROBIN Built is a new one on my favorite list. Denise Fleming styled the text for this book after the traditional favorite This is the House that Jack Built. There is a lot of repetitive text which will make it a great read aloud for young children. They will soon be reciting the text along with the reader.
Denise Fleming used a collage technique to create her illustrations. Teachers could easily have students create their own collages after reading the book together. Denise Fleming has a great web site complete with book trailers, activities to do with each of her books, and information about her illustration process. After looking at all the resources she has available, I may just plan a Denise Fleming story time sometime.
I will definitely be adding This Is The NEST That ROBIN Built to my Mock Caldecott unit later this fall. It is a great picture book.
