Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Animals migrate for a number of reasons—to find food, to mate, to bear offspring in a safe place, to escape seasonal changes. This is the first information given to readers, arming them with the necessary background knowledge to proceed further. The concept that animals follow their instincts and trace back over the migration routes of their ancestors is one that will fascinate young readers. Animal families that are featured include birds, salmon, eels, whales, caribou, wildebeests, lemmings, ants, monarch butterflies, alligators and sea turtles. This book is filled with interesting information. For example, the section about caribou explains that the pregnant females migrate several weeks before the males in order to give birth and get the calves up and moving by the time the males catch up. Sea turtles, on the other hand, come out of the water to lay eggs in the sand, then return to the sea. Their babies are left to hatch without any supervision and make it to the sea on their own. Female sea turtles will return to the same beaches to lay eggs year after year. Clear photographs are combined with simple color drawings to support the text. Part of "The Science of Living Things" series. 2002, Crabtree Publishing, $19.95 and $5.95. Ages 6 to 10. Reviewer: Carol Lynch AGES: 6 7 8 9 10
