When a pair of robins begins building a nest in Amelia Bedelia's swing set, she is torn between wanting to clear it off so that she can continue to slide down her slide, and giving up that fun so she can watch the birds raising their babies. She sides with the birds, and observing them informs her about her own family.

Praises & Awards
New York Times Book Review
“No child can resist Amelia [Bedelia] and her literal trips through the minefield of the English language—and no adult can fail to notice that she’s usually right when she’s wrong.”
“Amelia [Bedelia] wears her new picture-book format well…[it] works beautifully as a new way to encounter the gaffe-prone gal.”
