Synopsis

Extraordinary Migrations by Sharon Katz Cooper

Many animals migrate, and their journeys are filled with challenges and wonder. But some animals' migrations go beyond, making them extraordinary. Delightful storytelling and vivid illustrations invite readers to swim, waddle, crawl, and fly alongside a gray whale, an Emperor penguin, a Christmas Island crab, and a monarch butterfly as each animal fulfills part of its life cycle.
