Reviewed by Janelle Fila for Readers' Favorite Oscar the Extraordinary Hummingbird: And Other Tales From Life In My Father's World by Lisa Worthey Smith is a non-fiction, inspirational book about the work of God and how it connects with our every day life. When God connects Lisa with an injured hummingbird, the author realizes that there are many ways that nature illustrates the power of God's word. She tells those stories and connections within this book, showing how seeds, flowers, creatures like the hummingbird, and even predatory animals have a lesson to teach about God's love and wisdom. The author uses nature and animal stories to talk about God's love, obedience, and trust and tells these stories in simple, easy to understand lessons. These lessons of God's creation correlate with lessons from the Bible and showcase how God cares for all creatures, even the tiniest sparrow that has fallen to the ground. These stories are both encouraging and inspiring. Readers that are discouraged, have self-doubt, or are experiencing sorrow will especially enjoy these uplifting tales as they teach about God's constant presence in the world and His all encompassing love. These stories will help readers draw closer to God and experience His magnificence in ways they have never known before. Even readers who are not believers in God will find these stories beautiful. These stories can still be a great blessing for a reader who wants to focus on the beauty of nature and animals and not necessarily on who created them.
