What's Tiny Bird About

Publisher Summary

A narrative nonfiction picture book following a hummingbird’s daunting journey south for the winter, with stunning art. When the last summer flowers open their petals to the slanting sun, it’s time for a tiny hummingbird to dip its beak into the heart of each flower, extracting as much nectar as possible before the hard trip ahead. Today is the day Tiny Bird begins its amazing journey south for the winter, traveling as fast as thirty miles an hour for hundreds of miles on end. The trip is long, with savaging weather and many predators along the way, but Tiny Bird is built for this epic journey and eventually arrives at its winter home. This inspiring and informative story celebrates the important role of a small but mighty creature. For animal enthusiasts, future environmentalists, and fans of Katherine Roy’s How to Be an Elephant.
