About hummingbirds: A guide for children by Cathryn and John Sill

Sill's "About" series pairs simple facts with exquisite watercolors detailing species, habitats, and details of the featured animals.
This title focuses on hummingbirds and Sill talks about their feeding habits, different species of hummingbird, reproduction, and more. The illustrations are, as always, beautifully detailed and perfectly illustrate the simple sentences.

Extras: The afterword includes extensive details on each color plate and the hummingbird or aspect of hummingbirds it features. There is also a glossary, further reading, sources, and information about the authors and their other titles.

Verdict: This is a popular series which I use frequently in story time as it works well with young children. The text in this particularly title felt a little bland in comparison with some of their other titles, but this is still an excellent addition and one I recommend for any library.
