Hummingbird

author: Nicola Davies
illustrator: Jane Ray

Tz'unun! Tz'unun! A buzz of wings, a flash of color . . . Thereís a very special visitor in Grannyís garden. Itís a hummingbird! And itís just about to begin its long migration, heading north to its nesting ground. Watch as it spreads joy to all who encounter it along its two-thousand-mile trek. In an engaging text sprinkled with facts, zoologist Nicola Davies introduces readers to this valiant bird, lighter than a nickel, while Jane Rayís lush, intricate illustrations, accented in gold Pantone, highlight its jewel-like beauty. More details about hummingbirds, along with a bibliography and an index, are available at the end to budding ornithologists.

Follow a tiny hummingbird on its journey from Central America to Central Park in a captivating tale with exquisite illustrations echoing the creatureís jeweled tones.
