Growing Up Humming
Mike Spinak
2012 / Mike Spinak
41 pages

"Growing Up Humming" is a charming picture book about the lives of hummingbirds.  Written and photographed by Mike Spinak, the book tells the story of a few days in the lives of two baby hummingbirds - how they develop, how their mother feeds them, and how they learn to fly. Designed for kids of all ages, the photography is stunning and the text is excellent -  descriptive without being too scientific, and more objective than cutesy with easy-to-understand prose and information that will surprise even some adults. This truly is a book for all age groups because the photography is so good and shows many physical features of hummingbirds that most people never have the opportunity to see. I also really enjoyed the page of “Anna’s Hummingbird Facts” at the end of the book.

This is a great book for introducing children to the wonders of nature! Very highly recommended!
