About this product
- DescriptionMany animals migrate, and their journeys are filled with challenges and wonder. But some animals' migrations go beyond, making them extraordinary. This title invites 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.
