A Nest for Kora
ill: Judith Rossell
Windy Hollow Books
A young hen Kora is preparing to lay her first egg. Where will she find the perfect nest?
Australian author Claire Saxby has produced a simple and elegant tale about learning from mistakes and growing a little smarter in the process. Judith Rossell's farmyard illustrations are a joy, particularly her depiction of a country homestead's back verandah, filled with luscious detail. This is a truly enchanting story for children aged 2-5 years. Victoria Larkin, Melbourne's Child August 2007
