Stunning full-color photographs and simple text introduce readers to the natural beauty and amazing behaviors of a pair of Eastern bluebirds. A sky-blue male and his young mate select the perfect place to lay their eggs and raise their chicks—a nest box built especially for them. Soon, hatchlings gape hungrily for their next meal. As the chicks grow, fledge, and learn to find food on their own, award-winning photographer Pamela Kirby captures them in startling close-ups and action shots.

★ "Kirby, photographing from a blind in her own backyard, has done for the Bluebird what Nic Bishop did for The Red-Eyed Tree Frog (Scholastic, 1999). Pair the two to inspire young naturalists and photographers." —School Library Journal, starred review

"Text (beautifully in sync with newly independent readers' capabilities) and photos symbiotically engage young readers with both expected and unusual details. . . . Both enlightening and invigorating. (bibliography, Internet resources, glossary)" —Kirkus Reviews

"The author's admiration of bluebirds is evident and slightly infectious." —Science Books & Films
