Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6–A brief overview of migratory creatures and the patterns they follow. From the legendary lemming to gray whales, from Arctic terns to European eels, the brief text presents snippets of pertinent facts. Odd migrations, such as the daily vertical journeys of zooplankton and the one-way trips of army ants, are described. All are accompanied by softly colored realistic drawings. Some simple experiments, such as making a sun compass or proving that warm air rises, are also included. While not as detailed or as handsome as Seymour Simon's Ride the Wind (1997), They Swim the Seas (1998), and They Walk the Earth (2000, all Harcourt), this title will fit tidily into the science curriculum.–Patricia Manning, formerly at Eastchester Public Library, NY

From Booklist

Gr. 2-4. Packed with fascinating facts about a wide range of migrating animals and relayed in chatty style, this attractive picture book is illustrated with handsome line-and-watercolor pictures that show each animal up close on its amazing journey. The style is engaging and personal without indulging in silly anthropomorphisms, but the exciting facts don't need constant exclamation points ("Imagine flying nonstop for five days across the ocean!" "Watch out for crustaceans!"). The amazing science speaks for itself, whether the subject is millions of army ants moving in a colony or the wonder of the arctic tern's 22,000-mile flight. Kaner also includes lots of hands-on activities, including one that helps kids understand how fish move up and down in the water. The spacious double-page spreads show the drama and invite discussion. Hazel Rochman
