Product Details


★ “The text pulses with enthusiasm . . . Gibbons’s encouragement to “get going” is hard to resist. Gibbons makes migration accessible and endlessly fascinating. An excellent addition to collections featuring scientific studies of animal behavior and language arts investigations of how to clearly present information with enthusiasm.”School Library Journal, Starred Review
“Packing the pages with a plethora of facts, Gibbons details how far each species migrates, why (for food, for a warmer breeding spot, etc.), and related tidbits—what the animals do when they arrive, for example. Children will be absorbed, too, in the pleasingly retro and vividly hued watercolors of the animals and their journeys. Covering whole double-page spreads, the illustrations also feature multiple maps showing each species’ route. A great addition to nonfiction shelves, especially where animal encyclopedias are popular.”—Booklist

“A straightforward, wide-ranging survey that should be a welcome addition to the nature shelf.—Kirkus Reviews

“This title will appeal to elementary teachers, students, and readers who are interested saving planet Earth. . . . This is an excellent depiction of the phenomenon of relocation, and the facts provided will fascinate even the most reluctant readers. Included are reasons for migration, migration routes, groups that migrate, and different modes of migration. The illustrations, done with black ink, watercolors, and colored pencils, provide beautiful depictions of each animal and will appeal to all readers. . . . Lovers of nature and casual readers alike will enjoy all the fun facts included in this book. Elementary librarians will definitely want to add this title to their collection.—School Library Connection
