Book Reviews – That Quail, Robert and Duck! Rabbit

That Quail, Robert is just the best little book. If you love true stories about little creatures, I’m sure you will love this one. A couple watches some quail parents hatch their little family one spring. Having read that quail don’t return to their nest after their babies hatch, they went to take a look at the nest and found two little left-behind eggs. One cracked, the other whole. They took the little mite-covered egg in the house, wiped it off with disinfectant and set it on the counter to admire. It hatched. You’ll want to read the rest of the story about this endearing little quail. Though written over 40 years ago it could have been written yesterday.

Speaking of critters – this is my favorite spring picture book, Duck! Rabbit. With just the right simple, quirky drawings and humor, it’s a little lesson on perspective. My granddaughter, Sophia, read this one straight through to her Grandpa and me, complete with the emPHASis on the right sylAble!
