From a whispered twitter to a full-fledged chorus, the birds' antics unfold in a poetic story across 48 engaging pages.

Whether enjoyed independently by children aged 5+ or shared with a grown-up for younger readers, The Best Nest Contest promises educational fun, with colourful illustrations bringing this enchanting story to life.

All was calm

in the gardens of green,

but one little song,

caused a scene,


It began with a twitter,

barely a sound,

but grew to a chorus,

all around.


“My nest is the best”,

they sang in turn,

but Bullfinch knows,

they’ve much to learn.


‘This colourful and quirky children’s book is a wonderful introduction to British birds, and their nesting habits. A lovely story woven around some real facts about nesting habits… young children should love it!’ – Barn Owl Trust
