19765 Who Stole the Bird's Nest, Prang publishers.

Who Stole the Bird's Nest?

Though this lovely lithographed strip would stand just as decoration, it tells a story as well: First the yellow breast discovers her eggs and nest are missing, then she goes from animal to animal asking about her nest, then the birds and animals converge on the school demanding justice, and Mary Green and Alice Neal sympathize. But "a little boy hung down his head/and went and hid behind the bed/for HE stole that pretty nest/ From poor little yellow breast! And he felt so full of shame/He didn't like to tell his name.... No adult moralizing here at all. There were six little books in this series that were also published together in a box as the Christmas Stocking Library.

Why the Robin's Breast is Red.

By the author of J. Cole. Not really a children's book, as it is about marital problems and unrequited love in the bird world, but pretty; the birches on the cover are just as bright as when the books was new. NOTE: This Book Has Been SOLD.
