    Oh MY. This is one of my very favorites to read with my son. More importantly (HUH?), it is one of HIS favorites and has been since he was just a baby.Look for the whimsically hidden caterpillar hidden on each page - even after the 1000th reading, it is still a fun challenge!This is an unusual find and not your typical board books. As such, this would make an EXCELLENT thoughtful baby shower gift.

    Suzanne was pretty into this book, and liked all the lines the bird draws, and how it all comes together at the end, but on around our 10th reading, I realized there was a tiny caterpillar in (almost) every page. I pointed this out to Suzanne and she became OBSESSED with the book and loved finding it on every page. It's the same effect as the little mouse in Goodnight Moon. We got this one from the library but will have to track down a copy.

    I recall reading this with older child; she really enjoyed the rhythm of text. I think she was inspired to draw more nature as well. I haven't tried it out on baby yet. The pictures are vibrant, and full of motion as the bird flies about. The text has lots of "ing" phrases ('sip, sip, sipping') I think baby will enjoy hearing. Others have commented about following the caterpillar on each page too, a fun hunt for kids. I like that it is a story where the kid is protagonist and observing nature, but not changing it.

    I wouldn't necessarily read this book in my classroom. I think it is meant for younger toddlers and babies. My almost four year old did enjoy this book and it was nice to introduce her to hummingbirds and their movement patterns. She enjoyed tracing the hummingbirds trails with her fingers. If I found this book for a really great price I would probably buy it for my classroom library. The color scheme and illustrations are vibrant and beautiful to look at and I think would help to keep a very young child's attention.

    This book was a about a boy who was painting a picture while watching the humming bird outside his window named "little green". He talks about the bird going up and down and side to side and left to right. At the very end of the story the boy shows the reader his picture and it is all different color lines all over his paper. This book is a rhyming book. Great for kindergarten or first grade. The illustrations are very pretty.

    This is a nice story about an artist watching a tiny green bird flit about outside, and how the meanderings of the bird inspire the artist in his work. Writers, too, will be able to identify with finding inspiration in daily happenings that might seem normal or mundane to most observers. This book really is very much about the spark of of creativity, and how it finds its mark in artistic people. I would probably give it one and a half stars, which in no way means that I didn't like it.

    We had checked this out from the library some months ago and enjoyed it moderately (after seeing hummingbirds constantly at the feeders). But then, I found it for sale at the library and my two year old loves it. Even my daughter's Webkinz hummingbird has become "Little Green" and we read it a few times per day. He likes to find the inch worm on each page and talk about the colors of the flowers and paint brushes.

    A perfect picture book about hummingbird movement. A young boy watches a hummingbird out his window as the hummingbird flies, zips, darts, zooms and dips his way through the yard and garden.Beautiful illustrations getting the vibrancy of the hummingbird and the flowers, just right.Written and illustrated by Keith Baker, published by Harcourt Inc.#hummingbird #environment #habitat #movement #PB

    An artist watches a hummingbird through his window, and paints the zipping, zagging, curlyqueing flight of the little green bird. Children will watch with glee as you trace the bird's flight for them! For ages 2-5.

    This is a perfect book for beginning painting: lines, zig zags, squiggles, etc. the boy observes, observes, observes a hummingbird. And he paints the flying motions and lines of movement, instead of the bird. So cute. Illustrations are simple, kid like, like Eric carle.

    My baby and I both really enjoyed this one. It has vibrant colors and simple text with a nice rhythm. It would be good for older readers, too. Preschoolers would enjoy finding the caterpillar on each page, and I think early readers could have success with the simple words.

    A very short and simple rhyming book that looks at the flight of a hummingbird from a child's perspective. Bright illustrations and the acrobatics of the hummingbird's flight are wonderful to look at and the text is simple enough for young children to enjoy.

    This is a wonderful, short book about a humming bird. Great for a bird storytime for Lapsit or Preschool. Bright and poetic. Nice to have a book that deals with a specific kind of bird that is not a robin, duck or a chicken.

    Great ending, a wonderful introduction to the idea that there are different ways for art to represent the world. Glorious colors and details on the flowers. I didn't notice the caterpillar on every page until another reviewer mentioned it!

    A young boy paints the flight of a hummingbird as it zips, loops, and zigzags around his garden.

    This is a great book for students to read to express their artistic qualities. Students can interact and respond to the book.

    Really not your typical board book. The illustrations are beautiful, the rhythm is lovely and the vocabulary is amazing.

    Little Green is a hummer with zip. The jaunty rhyme and speedy flight make a high energy story for sharing.

    Pretty pictures and a cute story for families that live to observe nature together.

    A new favorite story to add to our collection. We read it while cuddling on our couch, watching our own hummingbirds dart back in forth in front of the window.
