    • This is a through, somewhat humorous, and very well laid out book about robins, their nesting habits, their young, and their maturation.


    • Two robins, only a few months old, considered teenagers tell the story of how they came to be, beginning with their parents arrival in the location where they were hatched. The book is chock full of facts that were new to me! From nest building to knowing about a brood patch were facts this book contained. Unfortunately only two of the four eggs hatched and one of the babies was carried off by a hawk. Descriptions of predators and the different kinds of calls used by the parent robins to warn th [...]


    • Eileen Christelow once noticed a robin who built her nest on a hoe in an open shed one year. Her husband moved it to use the hoe and Mother Robin built another nest “on the hoe”. Eileen began to investigate, didn’t understand what was going on. Evidently, this mom wanted “that” place. Since then, this book, Robins! How They Grow Up, has been written and illustrated by Eileen. She’s chosen to have two young robins tell their tale, and they even started with Dad’s journey, they say, [...]


    • For as long as I can remember their presence is one of several signs spring will be here soon. First you occasionally see one or two, then you might see an entire flock covering a lawn as they migrate to their home territories. The once cold, silent sunrises are now filled with a new song. There is an old practice for bringing good luck when you see the first one of a new season. Upon sighting one, lick the thumb of your right hand and then place it in the palm of your left hand. You next make a [...]


    • Christelow, Eileen Robins! How They Grow Up. PICTURE BOOK. Clarion Books (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt), 2017. $16.99. Content: PG.Two young robins tell the story of how their parents met, how they were born, and how they survived to become juveniles. Endnotes give more information about the lives of robins.The story format adds interest to this nonfiction picture book and encourages children to empathize with robins. Unfortunately, that makes it all the more difficult when two of the four baby rob [...]


    • Engaging and informative picture book about the migration and life cycle of robins. The illustrations trend toward graphic novel, with cartoon birds at the bottom adding to the narrative. However, the larger illustrations are realistic and seem true to nature. Warning for those tender at heart: one of the young fledglings does not survive. In the back of the book, you learn that life is rough for wild robins. In nature, only one out of four young robins make it to six months old!The robin is the [...]


    • Who knew mother robins use their feet to squish down mud in the nest? Or that the parents eat or carry away the babies little white poop sacs? Lots of detail told in first-person, with headings for stages, many panels showing details, and two little robins on each page discussing certain facts in speech bubbles. What I like best is that the book does not gloss over the fact that generally only one in four eggs laid will survive past six months - a very important fact of life! Some people think t [...]


    • Robins!: How They Grow Up is full of fascinating details about robins that will enhance what young readers have probably already noticed about them. As the primary text explains how young robins are born and develop, some comic robins lurking at the bottom of the pages comment on the narrative. This provides some nice variety, which is needed because the pictures become repetitive in places, mostly because the backgrounds are so plain, and the robins look mostly the same from page to page. Still [...]


    • Graphic novel, "Robins!: How They Grow Up" follows the progression of a robins life as it grows and ages. This graphic novel is super informational and provides fun insight from other animal characters included. There is lots of helpful back matter that provides further information to the reader about said birds. I liked this book because I thought the teaching approached used to teach readers about their life cycle was engaging and entertaining.


    • Reggie is an amusing robin who hangs around in the maple tree in our backyard. This awesome nonfiction picture book tells the story of the first year of a robin's life. With beautiful illustrations and kid-friendly text, young readers will learn all about these birds that are right outside their windows. This is a great nonfiction resource to have on the bookshelf.


    • We've had robins nest on our porch for the last few years and have been curious about what all they were up to. This book answered many or our questions and some we didn't know we had. <3 Nice combo of text, illustrations, and cartoon robins.


    • This was awesome! I learned so much! I liked that the baby robins narrated the book to help create more of an emotional investment in the information given. The panel-style reminded me of a graphic novel and will appeal to kids who may otherwise avoid nonfiction.


    • A really fun informative non-fiction narrative! I see robin's all the time so it was cool to learn more about them! It was from the perspective of two 'teenaged' robins and the pictures were great!


    • This is an outstanding nonfiction book told by two "teenage" robins and illustrated with sequential art style illustrations. I really learned a lot about these birds in this little book!






    • I thought this was an informative book about robins and would be a great addition to any elementary school library collection.


    • Very, very interesting! I thought it would be more of a fictional story/picture book, but it's more a non-fiction account of how baby robins grow up. Loved it!




    • Great story line goes along with how birds live their lives from building nests, hatchlings, flight, and then back again. loved this book!


    • Great. With nice large illustrations it is easy to see the details and the information provided is great. There are sources at the back too!





    • Today I learned there is such a thing as a brood patch, and I am just fascinated and intrigued by the idea that momma birds will automatically shed and regrow feathers during the nesting season.Don't get me wrong, the rest of the book was also really interesting, but that's my biggest takeaway from the text.I did like the frank discussion of the young robins' lives, from eating and keeping the nest clean to predators and how unwary fledglings can wind up as raptor food.Lots of good details in th [...]



    • Two juvenile robins narrate the story of their lives, starting with their father's migration north to stake out a territory, to their own migration south (and everything in between - nest-building, egg-laying, nest-guarding, feeding, siblings, predators, development, flight, roosting, and more). These birds, common throughout North America, will be familiar to many readers, and this book will answer many of their questions about how robins spend their time. Eileen Christelow set her story in a t [...]
