Product Details


An accomplished science writer for children, Davies contributes a text that weaves strands of story and fact into a satisfying whole. Ray’s radiant watercolor-and-pencil artwork creates landscapes that are full of life, yet orderly and graceful…Lightly combining narrative with relevant information, this beautiful picture book is brimful of quiet charm.
—Booklist (starred review)

The book, a colorful blend of fact and fiction, raises the bar for its genre and will leave many readers hopeful to hear the “Tz’unun! Tz’unun!” of hummingbird wings in their own gardens. A wonderful addition to any informational picture book collection.
—School Library Journal

Ray employs the jewel tones of the birds and the flowers they feed on (such as scarlet sage and trumpet honeysuckle) to create an airy yet lively backdrop that is as full of motion as the fluttering of a hummingbird’s wings.
—The Horn Book

A sweet and endearing feathered migration.
—Kirkus Reviews
