Chronicle. May 2023. 14p. Board $12.99. ISBN 9781797210094.
Toddler-PreS–In a book cut out in the shape of a tree, while hummingbirds hover nearby, the plotting is playful as readers are invited to observe the behavior of the creatures and their why. They have to move fast, to sip enough nectar, but that’s also the act that pollinates the flowers. The nest for the eggs is tiny, but it will stretch as the eggs hatch and the nestlings grow.
VERDICT A few facts, with delicate digital illustrations that have the look of watercolors, this will engage children in an early ornithology lesson.
