Mia and the Hummingbird is the story of a young girl who immigrates to a new country and learns to accept a new life.She sees the hummingbird building her nest for her babies and thinks that she and the bird are similar as they learn to adapt to their new homes. Mia and the Hummingbird includes information about environmental and social reasons for immigration, the struggle to adapt to a new home and information about hummingbirds. Included is a glossary about these issues, a bibliography, and references
This is a good book. I would call it an educational reading experience. It teaches some good lessons on things like perseverance and adaptability. These are lessons that Mia learned from the Hummingbird. The hummingbird had patience seeking out the supplies to build her nest.
Mia having to relocate from her former life to a new one had to learn these lessons as well. Yet, when she did, she found out it was easier to make friends.
This book is filled with tons of interesting and teach worthy facts. Any facts about a hummingbird were inserted on the same page with that illustration. At the back of the book is a glossary of words that were used throughout the story. The older children will not have a problem reading this book on their own but younger readers, will need assistance.
