Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
NSTA Recommends

This book is a rich resource for students in grades 2 to 6 to read and explore the immense variety of animal adaptations, not only for migration but for survival. . . . The first six pages alone would make the book worth having as a resource through middle school because of the precision and clarity of the explanations of factors affecting migration. . . . I strongly recommend Incredible Journeys as a resource for almost any grade and even for the interested adult. It's a lovely book!

 

San Francisco Book Review

Incredible Journeys effectively divides the information into brief snippets easy for students to digest, including breathtaking photographs. It is a welcome addition of new information to the general knowledge about migration.
