In the Bible, birds are used to teach us lessons because they symbolize love, freedom, and respect. Some of the most typical examples of teachings on this subject were those of Christ. In Matthew 6:26, He says: 'Behold the birds of the sky, which neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and your Heavenly Father feeds them. Aren't you worth much more than them?’ Anna Hummingbird deals with this particular passage charmingly. Kristina Schoettle shows us an adorable hummingbird that lives with other birds and teaches us the biblical allegory in a way that will be very entertaining for children. With this book, children will have an appropriate approach to the teachings of the Bible at a level that is easy for them to understand.
I liked the themes of freedom and nature. Kristina Schoettle expresses these very significant ideas in a down-to-earth manner. In Anna Hummingbird, she explains nature and its relationship to birds while Anna flies around meeting other birds, learning a great deal from them. This aspect was also very enjoyable. At the end of the book, there is a section where the images of the birds are shown with their names to assist children in identifying them. Children need to be more connected to nature, and this book can help them see the wonderful world around them in a more meaningful way. Readers will also be interested in the lessons from the Bible.
