Short story alert:

Once upon a time there was a beautiful robin who built a bird nest in a tree near the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France. The robin laid 3 delicate cream-colored eggs in the nest. The eggs were the loveliest cream color with tiny little red speckles the robin had ever seen. The robin sat on her eggs to keep them warm for almost 15 days unless she was out hunting for food to eat.  When the mother robin wasn’t sitting on her eggs to keep them warm or hunting for food to eat, she would perch near the top of the Eiffel Tower and watch all the people going by. On the 14th day the eggs started slowly hatching one by one until there were three tiny baby robins for the parents to care for. Both parents of the baby robins take turns feeding them. For about 3 weeks the parents feed their beautiful baby birds. After two weeks of the baby robins being in the nest the parents gently nudge them from the nest to teach them how to fly and take care of themselves. One by one the baby robins are gently and safely pushed from the tree. All three of the baby birds land safely on the ground where they learn to fly and feed themselves. THE END!

Hi!! I'm Mimi, the author of the JOEY SAVES THE DAY! book series. I love reading and writing. I homeschool my two youngest children. My 15-year-old daughter illustrated the books and will illustrate all the rest of them in the series. She started illustrating the series when she was 14 years old. She loves to draw. She is learning as she goes. Her dream is to one day be a famous illustrator and a fantasy book writer. Children and adults everywhere will love these books. The story and illustrations within the pages of the books will put a big smile on your face and your child will be delighted as you read them the books. The illustrations are adorable and the story is super cute. You don’t want to miss out on the opportunity to own this collection of adorable books! All five of the books are available on Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Target, Walmart, and Books A Million.
