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

By Diane Lang, Stephanie Laberis (Illustrator)
$17.99

Availability: Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
Published: Beach Lane Books - May 2018

Lang has lovely poetic language that tells of animals and the world and how everything is connected. The illustrations of Stephanie Laberis tie it together. They show the habitats of the animals simplistically but still detailed enough so you know what to look for outside. Even in the places that you cannot look at, like deep in the ponds and oceans. Perfect colors make this a pleasant read to the eyes as well ears. The round-up at the end gives you more science of the animals (such as what class means) as well as more environmental issues and places you can learn more about helping animals. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
