Great book for early readers about migrating animals. Son (1st grade) really enjoyed reading it himself - and stayed engaged.

Most creatures live their whole lives near where they were born, but others travel thousands of miles, facing many challenges, moving from one place to another. Here are the accounts of six of those animals, illustrated with large, full-color paintings.
