Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Introduction to hummingbirds by award-winning writer Laurel Aziz. She brings to life this tiny force of nature in this gorgeous book illustrated throughout with stunning full color photographs

Synopsis:

The hummingbird brings a whole new meaning to the word unique. Boasting the smallest bird in the world, this family ranges in size from the two inch long bumblebee hummingbird to the giant hummingbird, which reaches a length of eight inches. The hummer's metabolism is as powerful as the engine of a high-performance race car, its heart pumping at a stunning 1,260 beats per minute to maintain a steamy body temperature of 105 degrees F. Its mighty chest muscles account for more than one third of its weight and allow it to flap disproportionately large wings at a dizzying 50 to 200 times per second. No wonder a hummingbird sighting in a backyard garden is cause for delighted celebration. In Hummingbirds: A Beginner's Guide, award-winning writer Laurel Aziz explores these details and many more, bringing to life this tiny force of nature. Hummingbirds is illustrated throughout with stunning full color photographs.

Synopsis:

A foray into the realm of the tiny and elusive hummingbird covers every aspect of this unique creature, from its size and metabolism to its ability to flap its wings 50 to 200 times per second.
