Ama's Picture Books

My grandmother recently left me her entire collection of picture books and children's literature. The entire collection is comprised of over 300 books. I am attempting to read as many as possible in 2014.

The Far-Flung Adventures of Homer the Hummer

The Far-Flung Adventures of Homer the Hummer - Cynthia Furlong Reynolds

With the exception of the girl on the cover all the characters are white. But it's an interesting story about hummingbirds. I learned that they migrate over open bodies of water. Who knew?
