Hummingbird Season

We rated this book:


We loved that this book was written as poems. Some feelings are too big for a book. And Archie has big feelings—about his brother, his family, COVID-19—and the poems say it all perfectly. We haven’t read many books that are all poems that aren’t poetry collections, so to read a whole story told in a series of poems was amazing.

COVID-19 was really hard for our family. Our grandmother died and it was really confusing about where we could go and what we were expected to do. Hummingbird Season by Stephanie V.W. Lucianovic reminded us of what it was like to go through the pandemic, and Archie’s stories helped us process some of those confusing feelings.

We love Archie and how he sees the world. We didn’t have the same experience as he did during the pandemic, but that’s okay. We’re all different and that’s okay. This book made us sad, but also happy and silly and hopeful. We recommend this book for readers who had a rough time during the pandemic too.
