It's a Hummingbird's Life

(4) K-3 From spring mating to winter migration, this book profiles a year in the life of the busy ruby-throated hummingbird. It's packed with enjoyable facts--"You could mail 60 [hummingbird] eggs with one postage stamp!"--but the text, printed in wavy lines and sometimes vertically, can be hard to read. Sketchlike color images of the birds and their environments convey their constant motion, sometimes at the expense of key details.
