"After we read this book together, I had my class think about different ways we could act out the story. The kids really learned the songs and had fun moving to it as well. This singalong storybook provides a great way to start a class discussion about families, family tree relations, etc. I liked the teaching ideas in the back of the book (especially the Opposites activity suggestion)."
—Academics' Choice Awards teacher reviewer
"This cute story is about two birds that fly away and return over and over to build a nest and teach their babies to fly. At the end of the book you are given a suggested list of activities to do besides singing along to the story. These activities involve teaching kids about rhyming, opposites, and word substitution. Testers liked the suggestions and felt that the games added to the experience. The book is well made, using child-friendly colors, tones, rhymes, and pictures. The illustrations are exquisite, just like many other books from multiple-seal-winning Music Together. The words are printed big and in a child-friendly font which is great for them but also for you if you misplaced your glasses!"
—The National Parenting Center
