Davies, Nicola

Davies details the ruby-throated hummingbird's annual migration between Central and North America within a tale of an NYC girl's visit with her grandmother in Central America. Most pages include small-typeface information about hummingbirds, distinguishing expository details from the story. Ray employs the birds' jewel tones to create an airy yet lively backdrop that's full of fluttering motion. Includes a habitat map and an explanatory author's note. Bib., ind.
