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.

Back cover copy

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.
