Review:

"...The text and art combine to make this title a useful and engaging read..." ?School Library Journal
"...Full of interesting information and gorgeous artwork, About Hummingbirds would be a terrific addition to a unit on birds." ?NC Teacher Stuff blog
"Detailed watercolor illustrations support and extend the gentle text, which highlights key information about the only birds that can fly both forward and backward!" ?Bank Street College of Education
"...Short, lyrical sentences deliver the facts on the left side of the spread, while the right side shows in vivid, lush color the image from the text opposite it...This is a lovely Peachtree book and will be a hit with any young birder..." ?Simply Science blog
"Older readers and parents will appreciate the six fact-filled pages at the back..." ?Ithaca Child Magazine
"...Its illustrations are intricate and accurate in the best field guide tradition, showing all sorts of hummingbirds in all sorts of environments. And there's just the right number of them - 18 plates, highlighting 26 species in all, doing things like building nests and escaping from predators. The accompanying text is similarly selective, keeping what could have been an overload of facts to an easily-digestable minimum..." ?Lela Nargi News blog
"It's extraordinary. For me, it felt like I had a front row seat to a window box that allowed an unobstructed view into nature's wonderland." ?Satisfaction for Insatiable Readers blog
