On the Move - Animal Migrations

On the Move: Mass   Migrations
by Scotti Cohn; illustrated by Susan Detwiler
32 pages; ages 4-8
Sylvan Dell, 2013

Spring is migration time. In our area thousands of salamanders move from their winter homes in the woods to the ponds and pools where they'll mate and lay eggs. The air is filled with vees of geese honking their way north, while on the coast thousands of horseshoe crabs scuttle out of the bay and onto sandy beaches.

Scotti Cohn shares migration secrets from across the animal kingdom, through different habitats and over a year of seasons. Chimney swifts and monarch butterflies are more visible during fall migrations; come winter, elephant seals are on the move. There's information galore for earthkeepers and animal lovers who want to know more about the creatures who share our planet.

  1. This looks like a fascinating book! We get butterflies and geese and sandhill cranes moving thru our area. It's crazy to think of anything that wouldn't like to stay in one place. I'll have to check this one out! thanks!
