Migration Nation: Animals on the Go from Coast to Coast

Joanne O’Sullivan. Charlesbridge/Imagine!, $15.95 (96p) ISBN 978-1-62354-050-0
Ranger Rick, the National Wildlife Federation’s nature-loving raccoon and magazine star, helps children follow the migratory paths of nine animals across land, sea, and sky. A section on “herptiles” (reptiles and amphibians) takes readers to southern Illinois where some 50 species of snakes and amphibians migrate across “Snake Road” each spring and autumn; a segment about grey whales traces their 10,000-mile journey from Alaska to Mexico, “one of the world’s longest animal migrations.” Photographs, migration maps, and resources for readers who hope to witness firsthand some of these migrations round out a solid introduction to some impressive feats of animal ambulation. Ages 8–12. (May)
