Publisher Summary
An award-winning first glimpse into the world of hummingbirds. From the celebrated team of Cathryn and John Sill, creators of the About... and About Habitats series.

In this addition to the acclaimed About... series, former educator and author Cathryn Sill uses simple, easy-to-understand language to teach children what hummingbirds are, how they look, how they move, what they eat, and where they live.

With beautifully detailed, realistic paintings, noted wildlife illustrator John Sill introduces readers to the many varieties of hummingbirds--from the smallest type (the Bee Hummingbird of Cuba) to the largest (the Giant Hummingbirds of the Andes Mountains in South America). An afterword inspires further learning.

About Hummingbirds is part of the award-winning About... series, perfect for casual exploration as well as for early childhood and elementary units in science and animal life.
