    1. If you subscribe to the philosophy that brevity is a virtue you will appreciate this simple and boldly wrought fable Yahgulanaas uses his unique Haida Manga artwork to excellent effect The artwork is unlike that of any other Blue Spruce nominee in recent history His choice of using only 3 tones mirrors the simplicity of the fable itself The ending comes abruptly almost shockingly so for children However, the moral is clear although you may be small, scared, overwhelmed and against great odds, we [...]

    2. I love the message from Wangari Maathai in the back of this book it fits so perfectly with the message of the story.This would fit perfectly with lessons curriculum that calls students to action.

    6. The amazing hummingbird, the joyful messenger as described by Wangari Maathai, does all she can to save the burning forest, even though she can only carry one drop of rain at a time.The other animals of the forest follow her lead but not at first.An engaging story of courage to do all one can, even though it seems an impossible feat, the little hummingbird continued Excellent for teaching about the protecting the environment, natural disasters and that every little thing we do counts.Highly reco [...]

    7. Love, love, love this book My son and I read this at a time when I really needed the message This was an iffy purchase for me, but I am so glad it is in the library now In this book, the Little Hummingbird is taking a little drop of water and to put on the fire that is burning the forest down When asked by the Big Bear what he was doing, the Little Hummingbird responds with, I m doing everything I can Such a moving and powerful little book with simple but elegant illustrations.
