Ramone, a shy, ruby-throated hummingbird, is about to leave the nest for
the first time. But his anxiety and fear keep him from taking off as he
contemplates all that could go wrong. Full of kind words and
encouragement, Ramone’s mother gives him room to work through his
emotions, building his confidence and letting him set his own pace.
Ramone watches as his friends soar through the sky, realizing all he might
miss out on if he doesn’t conquer his fear. Ramone’s adventure showcases
the emotions, both positive and negative, children experience as they
approach new challenges. Accompanied by strikingly beautiful
illustrations, this tale guides readers through Ramone’s emotional
journey, showing kids that fear must be overcome in order to grow.
