Congratulations to artist & author Sarah Jane Conklin!

Congratulations to artist & author Sarah Jane Conklin , her book Nesting Grounds was chosen as one of the Best Books for Teens and Kids in 2020 by @kidsbookcentre, The Canadian Children’s Book Centre


About The Book
Sarah Jane created 20 luminous oil paintings depicting 10 familiar birds nesting and put them together in
Nesting Grounds. Each bird has 2 devoted paintings: The female in her nest; the nest with eggs. Additionally, the clutches in each nest increases incrementally from one to ten-the Sparrow having one egg up to the Wood Duck having ten. A 4-line verse accompanies each image describing the nesting ground unique to each bird. This artistically rendered book is ideal for artists and birders of all ages, and is a wonderful introduction to the nesting grounds of common birds. Birds featured in Nesting Grounds: Sparrow, Hummingbird, Robin, Cardinal, Plover, Goldfinch, Snow Bunting, Nuthatch, Chickadee, Wood Duck. Nesting Grounds is a companion book to Sarah Jane’s Flying Colours.

About the Author

Sarah Jane delights in her natural surroundings. She is inspired by the scenic beauty where she has lived, including her birthplace St. John’s, Newfoundland. She draws immense enjoyment from watching birds visiting her back yard in Fall River, Nova Scotia. Nesting Grounds is her follow-up book to Flying Colours.
