Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The life cycle of the hummingbird is revealed in this slim volume with beautiful close-up photographs. This addition to the "Springboards Into Science" series also carries the Weekly Reader Seal of Approval. Young readers will be delighted by this up close and personal look at the life cycle of hummingbirds. Amazing color photos of the hummingbird's nest reveal they are not much larger than a penny. The eggs they lay are the size of a raisin. Youngsters will view the female sitting on her nest and watch as the young hummingbirds make their appearance. In-flight photos show how the hummingbirds feed on the nectar of flowers and how they are attracted to the red of hummingbird feeders. Various photos of the different phases of their life cycle are shown and readers are asked to put these pictures in the order that they happen. A very useful glossary is an important aid to understanding. Further activities to enhance learning are included along with a page about suggestions for further study. These include books, videos and web sites. A complete index is also included. This is a valuable resource for the home, pre-school or primary bookshelf. 2001, Gareth Stevens, $19.93. Ages 4 to 8.
