"The art and the careful placement of text guide the eye through the necessarily chaotic scenes. This call to action is for the animals and for anyone who fears the insignificance of their efforts. It's a powerful message, made accessible and engaging through both Henderson's writing and Morales' vibrant, vividly textured illustrations. Outstanding backmatter loaded with hummingbird facts and acknowledgement of the places the animals depicted here live in the real world rounds out this truly special offering. Brave the crowds to get this one, wherever you are."--Kirkus Reviews
"Kids who feel especially powerless in a world that, like the Great Forest, is greatly threatened by forces larger than them, might find both the optimism and the honesty of the tale heartening. Spreads are fully saturated with vibrant colors and dynamic textures."--The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books
