About the Book

During a rain storm, Wanda Wren and Gerald Wren take shelter in a saw mill. It’s a warm, dry, and safe place. The two birds decide to make this their home.


Wanda and Gerald are pleasantly surprised with their new surroundings. Some of the workers leave crumbs for the wrens to find, and they gain a new friend in Patty. After watching the bird couple from a distance, she takes little actions to help the wrens build a nest and feed themselves. Soon, the saw mill comes alive with the sound of brand-new peeping residents.


A picture book for children, The Wren Nest tells the story of two birds who build not only a nest, but a family with the help of compassionate people at a saw mill.
