Small Wonders Level 3 - The Hummingbird by Mahmoud Gaafar, Jane Wightwick.

Small Wonders is a beautifully illustrated series of graded Arabic readers that is ideal for learners in grades 3–9 and heritage environments. Aligned to U.S. National Science Education Standards, each book includes interesting cultural information about the Arab world, with stunning images to provide context and visual stimulation.
