Going Home: The Mystery of Animal Migration by Marianne Berkes

Learning becomes fun with this book about animal migration. In Going Home: The Mystery of Animal Migration, amazing artwork will inspire children in classrooms and at home to appreciate the world around us!

Teachers, you'll love this one, which is almost a whole unit on migration wrapped in a winning combination of easy verse, factual language, and beautiful illustrations. For animals, migration is a powerful compulsion, sometimes over long distances, often skipping meals. Sometimes, as in the case of the monarch butterfly, a round-trip takes several generations. Why do they do it? How do they succeed? The ten featured species offer a broad representation of migration: loggerhead turtles, monarch butterflies, manatees, ruby-throated hummingbirds, Pacific salmon, Canada geese, California gray whales, caribou, Arctic tern, and emperor penguin. The book is loaded with additional "tips" for teachers. Once again Marianne Berkes combines her teaching, writing, and theatrical skills to combine entertainment with education-creative nonfiction at its best.
