Gr 2–5—This physically small but intriguing title focuses on animal movement and migration. The information is loosely broken into four sections. Each one is essentially a collection of stimulating facts about the ways animals migrate, interact, and adjust to their habitats. Each spread is made up of concise, well-written text and captivating full-color illustrations, which work well together. Many of the browsable, easy-to-understand tidbits will appeal to readers with an interest in a variety of creatures, although the informal presentation will likely not satisfy report writers.
VERDICT Consider this compact but thought-provoking selection for collections where animal books are in high demand.
