By M. Serbe on April 7 2010
Format: Hardcover
I love the fact that this book is physically bigger. I like the info on hummingbirds in the back. I love that the book is slightly re-written for younger kids.
Only one BIG drawback... Dukdukdiya is gone.
The Little Hummingbird is named Dukdukdiya in the original book, Flight of the Hummingbird. Kids LOVE to say Dukdukdiya. They LOVE that name.
If the hummingbird was still named Dukdukdiya in this book, it would be PERFECT.
Please put it back in the next edition.

I nice little book that reminds us of our responsibilities Oct. 21 2011
By Wildness - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a very nice, but little, book that tells a short parable about the flight of a humingbird that saves a forest. It is well written and illustrated by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas. Though the main story is a short four pages, it delivers it message effectively and succinctly. The added value with this book is the Afterward by Nobel Peace Price winner Wangari Maathai, the Kenyan woman known for her work planting trees in Africa (A previous version of this book also included an afterword by the Dalai Lama, but this edition does not).

Again, this is a short book, but it is a nice little package of important, though-provoking words. It would make a great gift for the environmentally enlightened as well as the environmentally challenged.

A Guide to my Book Rating System:

1 star = The wood pulp would have been better utilized as toilet paper.
2 stars = Don't bother, clean your bathroom instead.
3 stars = Wasn't a waste of time, but it was time wasted.
4 stars = Good book, but not life altering.
5 stars = This book changed my world in at least some small way.

A magnificent Haida-Manga children's work based on "Flight of the Hummingbird" Aug. 17 2010
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
Format: Hardcover
"The Little Hummingbird" is a magnificent Haida-Manga children's work based on "Flight of the Hummingbird," a tale based on a South American indigenous story about the heroic efforts of a tiny hummingbird to carry drops of water to end a forest fire. The vivid, spare, three-color (black, white and red) Haida-style illustrations are stunning, carrying the storytelling to new, multi-mythic impact levels. Hummingbird is observed and approached by many of the larger animals of the forest, who wonder why she is carrying single drops of water in her beak to fight an enormous forest fire. When asked what she is doing, Hummingbird responds, "I'm doing everything I can." An inspirational message titled Do The Best You Can from Wangari Maathai, founder of the Green Belt Movement in Kenya, is included at the end of "The Little Hummingbird." An additional resource mentioned in the book is the Haida anime "Flight of the Hummingbird," by Michael Nicoll Yahgulanaas.
