In this addition to the acclaimed About… series, educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what hummingbirds are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live. With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to the many varieties of hummingbirds, from the smallest type – the Bee Hummingbird of Cuba – to the largest – the Giant Hummingbirds of the Andes Mountains in South America. An afterword provides further details on the hummingbirds featured and inspires young readers to learn more.
