From delicate monarch butterflies to hardy walruses, groups of insects and animals around the globe are migrating unbelievable distances each year. Young readers will learn a little bit about the insect or animal, how far it travels, and why and where it migrates.
Glossy, full-bleed photos accompany basic information on the migratory habits of various creatures, most of them aquatic, in the Animal Migration series. With most migrations occurring for the sake of an animal’s young, facts about mating and breeding abound. . . . Each volume contains a map of the migration routes, color-coded to differentiate between summer and winter homes (or, in the case of salmon, organized by species). Informative, easy text makes this a solid introduction for primary-school readers, and for those who want to know more, each book comes with a learning code that will unlock additional information online.
