Imagine seeing hundreds of the same type of animal gathered at the same place at the same time! Right here in North America, many animals gather in huge numbers at predictable times and locations. Not all migrations are tied to seasonal food changes -- some are tied to life cycles. 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.
"Captivating, easy-to-understand language"
Cohn uses captivating, easy-to-understand language to explore animal migration. Each entry introduces a different animal's habitat and eating, hibernating, and breeding behaviors. Children will enjoy the passages on well-known creatures, such as snakes and salamanders, in addition to those on the lesser-known chimney swifts. The section on salamanders is reminiscent of Sarah Marwil Lamstein's Big Night for Salamanders (Boyds Mills, 2010). Detwiler's vibrant, full-page illustrations bring Cohn's text to life, placing kids in the center of each environment.
