Searching for Sweets Excerpt:

Halle began her search for flowers.  She especially enjoyed the nectar of red flowers and hoped she would be able to find some.  The little hummingbird hovered in the air, and looked around.  She saw lush green grass, and deep green ivy winding around and climbing the trees.  There were lots of green plants, but she didn’t see any red flowers.  Halle zipped on, zigging and zagging, until she found a garden.

The little hummingbird hovered as she took in the view.  The plants were lined up in neat little rows.  Halle noticed that the garden had cucumber plants, with little cucumbers resting on the ground, busy growing.  There were broccoli plants.  Dark green leaves surrounded the round clusters of broccoli.  Leafy spinach filled its row, and orange carrots barely peaked out of the ground.  The vegetables were beautiful, but Halle needed some nectar to eat.

Just then the little hummingbird spotted something red.  She zipped in closer, hoping it was a flower.   Halle hovered over the red, her wings moving so quickly they were just a blur.  It was a tomato.  Halle was disappointed.  The little hummingbird took a deep dragon breath in and out (deep breath) and decided to keeping looking for flowers.
