"About Hummingbirds: A Guide for Children" by Cathryn Sill, Illustrated by John Sill

Review:  “About Hummingbirds” by Cathryn Sill and Illustrated by John Sill is a wonderfully bright collection of hummingbird pictures that capture the beauty and uniqueness of this very small creature.  The author presents clear factual details in an interesting manner.  The illustrations are true to life with excellent shadowing that makes you feel like you are right outside watching these sweet birds.   

This is an excellent read aloud to small children as well as an excellent source for factual information for older children in need of report information.  The back of the book contains added pages chocked full of added details for older children in need of information.  This is a fabulous and versatile book for any collection. (rev. C. Delorge)

We have a collection of the Cathryn and John Sill "About" books in the Alamance Christian School library.  We appreciate, too, the dedication in the front of the book which reads, ""For the One who created hummingbirds." --Genesis 1:20
