" Gorgeous little book about the hummingbird’s migratory pattern. " said.

" A wonderfully illustrated book about the migration of Hummingbirds from Central and South America to Canada. I love Nicola Davies and her detailed non-fiction work about animals and the planet. " said.

" Wow! This book is just that, WOW. While there is nothing EARTH SHATTERING abut this book, but it beautifully blends a story and hummingbird facts seamlessly. The images are beyond lovely and just over all a fantastic package. " said.

"In this lovely Nature Storybook, Nicola Davies gives real insight into the story of the hummingbird. The tale of their spring migration from Central America to far Northern climates is fed with many facts and shows them as creatures, though tiny (about the size of your thumb!) of great resilience and fascinating beauty. But more than just the tale of a tiny bird, Davies weaves in an inter-generational relationships and the enduring connection of family. Add to this, the exquisite illustrations of Jane Ray, brimming with life and colour and you have something truly special. Filled with expression and detail, this book is simply beautiful. Not only one to learn a great deal from, but one to treasure." said.

"Combine fantastic illustrations with an adventure story about a tiny, but heart-strong bird and you have a winner. The tale begins with a whispered conversation between a grandmother and her granddaughter as they watch a Ruby Throated Hummingbird feeding in preparation for its spring migration from Central America to the United States. While the girl flies home to New York City, the hummingbirds' flight north is shown in steps, while including facts like the tiny creatures' ability to cross up to 500 miles of ocean without stopping. Their longevity, feeding preferences and nesting habits are also woven into the story, with each stage of the journey is shown through lavish illustrations. I read this to a fidgety kindergartener and he never moved the whole time I was reading. This is a perfect blend of story and factual information about a bird that nearly everyone loves." said.

"Filled with illustrations created in watercolor and watercolor pencil with gold ink, this beautiful picture book follows the journey of ruby-throated hummingbirds. Readers will be swept away by the beautiful images featuring hummingbirds all over the place. It starts with a small girl and her grandmother luring the birds into the garden. The little girl is moving to New York City, and her grandmother points out that the birds are also heading north. The hummingbirds touch many lives and evoke wonder as they fly away, and to the girl's surprise, she sees a hummingbird much later in the year after her family has settled into their new home. It really is a wonder how these small creatures can survive those long round trips. Several of the pages contain tidbits of information about hummingbirds to complement the story. My favorite images are found in the double-page spread showing the arrival of spring. All those greens and soft colors and mountain peaks are easy to the eyes, and evoked a feeling of peace in me. Science teachers will fall in love with this book, but fans of strong writing will also appreciate its beautiful words. As I finished it, though, I felt a bit sad that the increasing encroachment of humans has stolen places where the birds typically stopped for food and water along the way. " said.

" A fictional story infused with info about ruby-throated hummingbirds. Gorgeous paintings rendered in watercolor, watercolor pencil and gold ink. " said.
