Animal Migrations by Camilla De la Bedoyere


Animal Migrations by Camilla De la Bedoyere

Epic: Animal Migrations focuses on 12 of the most remarkable animal migrations in the world, from the monarch butterfly, which weighs no more than a pea, but journeys all the way across North America each year, to the leatherback turtle, which migrates across an entire ocean to breed. The book details the timespan and location of each migration, the reasons involved and the method used. A timeline on every spread gives the time frame for each migration, and what happens when. Additional background information to each animal is also provided, including the wildebeest, the Arctic tern, the caribou, the gray whale, the European eel, the Sockeye salmon, the dragonfly, the straw-coloured fruit bat, zooplankton and the Christmas Island red crab. Epic: Animal Migrations also looks at the science behind each migration, and how the animals know where and when to go. Infographic elements on each spread present information in a simple and highly visual way. Clear, concise text and a bright, appealing design make the book the perfect resource for project work on habitats, adaptation, genetics and inheritance, or simply a great leisure read, for children aged 9 and above. For more epic events, try reading the other titles in the Epic series: Battles, Empires and Explorers.
