First Flight is the beautifully photographed story of Honey and her two chicks, Ray and Zen. In over fifty stunning, full-color close-ups, it captures the grace, the beauty, and the simultaneous strength and fragility of one of nature’s tiniest birds. Professional photographer Don Carroll’s images of his tiny housemates are woven throughout with Noriko’s charming narrative describing the mother bird and her developing brood. Not just for bird enthusiasts, First Flight is a magical mix of hummingbird field guide, personal story, and new life taking flight. Readers will be captivated by the inherent drama as it unfolds in miniature, and they’ll cheer as babies Ray and Zen make their own first flights out into a bright new world.
