My Tiny Life by Ruby T. Hummingbird (A Nature Diary)

Tiny but mighty! A ruby throated hummingbird tells his own life story in this funny, bright, informative entry to the critically acclaimed Nature Diary science series.

May 15: Today I poked my way out of this tiny egg.

With Mom feeding him insects and nectar, Ruby T. Hummingbird is soon able to beat his wings and fly--up, down, backward, and forward--and forage for himself. But don't be fooled! This elegant creature can turn into a fierce fighter if another hummingbird tries to feed on his flower--or his hummingbird feeder.
 
June 21: This flower is MINE! No you don't.

A second test of his strength comes when he migrates to a warmer climate in the fall and a cooler climate in the spring.

March 1, 5 a.m.: I'm off! Wish me luck.

Children will love poring over the bright, highly detailed illustrations and pondering ideas about nature. The book includes a glossary and further information in the back of the book. Both art and text have been vetted for accuracy by an expert.
