Is Hanna Hummingbird a bully? She doesn’t think she is, but her friend, Marcos, has a different opinion when he sees how she treats other hummies. Can he help her see her behavior as he sees it?

This story helps children value others, increases empathy, and gives them confidence to help others who are being bullied.

I always enjoy watching the hummingbirds buzz around the feeders just outside my widow. The birds of various colors and sizes are beautiful and I love watching them zip forward, backward, sideways, up and down as they feed. I have noticed, however, that there is always one bird who is a bully. She will chase away the other birds, often not eating because she is so busy keeping others away from the feeders. He seems to selfishly want all the nectar for himself.

Some humans are like this. They are so busy focusing on themselves, they fail to consider the feelings and needs of others. I am amazed at those who take, take, and take, and never seem to consider the need to give. I simply do not understand that mindset. We are admonished by the scriptures to work to earn our own living and to give to others.          (1 Thessalonians 4:11; Ephesians 4:28)

This book was illustrated by my beautiful and talented niece, Vickie Weaver Douglas, who has given of her talent to make my story beautiful. I hope many children and adults alike enjoy this work.
