"Once upon a time, a hummingbird mommy named Ms. Honey built a nest on a solid branch of a bottle-brush bush in Phoenix, Arizona. Once she was done, it seemed spacious enough for her two babies who would soon arrive. Her nest had a small kitchen, nursery, living room with a flat screen TV, and Wi-Fi connection. The big window notably pointed North to avoid direct sunlight as it can get very hot in Arizona."
This is how the wondrous story begins. As Hugo and Matilda grew from hummingbird babies to toddlers to pilots, we became obsessed with documenting their magical journey through photography.
After looking at the pictures and discovering the story they told, it was only a matter of time before we decided to turn them into a children's book. We included a question section at the end of the story like "How do hummingbirds talk to each other?" for children and parents to observe and research hummingbirds together.
In addition to learning more about the bird species, we also encourage children and their parents to add their own imagination to the narrative, answering questions like "What is their favorite show on TV?" We would LOVE for readers to share their sightings of Hugo and Matilda (and other hummies) with us.
