Books with little to no text are great for reading to your youngsters. They allow for different and creative interpretations of the books and open up lots of opportunities for discussion about the illustrations. Jorey Hurley’s beautifully illustrated new title, Nest, is one such book.

Nest introduces us to two robins who are keeping watch over their egg and shows the family’s adventures over the course of a year, through the changing seasons. The book includes only one word of text in each double-page spread, allowing you, the reader, to tell your own version of the story. In addition, because of the limited text, it’s a great book for brand-new readers.

Stop in to enjoy this gorgeous new book. And, if this leaves you wanting to read some wordless books, check out this old post with some great wordless book suggestions!
