On the Move: Mass Migrations - Children's Book Review


Book Synopsis:

Imagine seeing hundreds of the same type of animal gathered at the same place and at the same time! Right here in North America many animals gather in huge numbers and can be seen at predictable times and locations. Not all migrations are tied to seasonal food changes—some are tied to life cycles and the need to gather in huge numbers. Certain birds, reptiles, mammals, amphibians, fish, and even insects migrate during spring, summer, fall, or winter. Travel along with them as you learn about what puts these animals On the Move.



My Review:

Snakes, bats, and caribou are just some of the animals featured in On the Move:  Mass Migrations.  The book, with beautiful illustrations, explains different animal migration patterns and behaviors.  In the 'For Creative Minds' section at the back of the book children can learn more detailed explanations about animal migrations.

On the Move: Mass Migrations is a Spring 2013 release by Sylvan Dell Publishing. To supplement the story, cross-curricular lesson plans or educational programs are available on the website.
