"Annie is filled with spring excitement as she discovers the beginnings of a nest outside her home. Waiting is hard for Annie with pet cat, Snowball, and, of course, cousin and neighbor, Henry and his dog, Mudge. Five blue eggs! Will they hatch? Annie's dad tempers the long wait with wise counsel about the safe observation of baby birds. Cassandra Morris narrates with a gentle understanding and enthusiasm well suited to Rylant's early reader. Morris's voice is child-friendly. She speaks distinctly and slowly but with a fast enough pace to maintain the excitement of the moments of bird watching. Cheeping on a Saturday pancake morning couldn't be heard by a cozier family!
