My only objection about this book is that it wasn’t available when I was a kid! With beautiful artwork and enticing flaps, this gorgeous book is an engaging and fresh approach to teaching the beauty and wonders of our one and only home, Planet Earth. ~ Reviewed by Linda Then

A fantastic non-fiction book about how “bugs” affect the ecosystem. From millions of years ago pollinators to today (with their declining populations) we see how important these sometimes less-than-graceful beings can be. Kurlansky shows how man and creature interacts with each other (sometimes positively, sometimes detrimentally). Packed full of amazing and funny information. Black and white illustrations enhance everything. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

This is a funny and educational book. Humor is both kid and adult friendly, with some jokes slightly more sophisticated. This and the fact the way it is set up (story text and fact text) allows the book to grow with your child. It is a multilevel and multi-aged book. There is something for everyone. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Davies beautifully blends a story and hummingbird facts seamlessly. You see how a bird (that is born in an egg the size of half a walnut shell) can fly from the southern hemisphere all the way to the Canadian border. We see how a hummingbird lands in the garden of a grandmother and her granddaughter and finds its way to New York and in a full-circle finds that little girl again. Through people and places the story unfolds as we learn about a bird that we usually only think of as “just pretty.” And, we learn stories about the people encountered along the way. Fantastically amazing illustrations that are frameable artwork. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

The reader will grow with this book due to the fact it is a poem/story first then a science book. Facts about birds are mixed in with the text. Bird lovers and people who enjoy a great story are the targeted audience. Great for a tie-in to a fiction science story for the classroom. Fun and lovely illustrations. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
