Amelia Bedelia loves her swing set. So one day, when she spots two birds building a nest on top of her slide, she is annoyed. How is she supposed to slide and have fun when there is a messy pile of twigs and grass in the way? Amelia Bedelia's mother tells her to let the birds be-after all, how often do you get to see two robins build a nest, lay their eggs, and raise a family in your very own backyard? Amelia Bedelia's father lends her his binoculars so she can get a bird's-eye view of the action, and soon Amelia Bedelia is an expert birder and observer. Is she for the birds? Well, yes. And no-as beginning readers will discover in this funny and easy-to-read story about families.
