Great Migrations

by Elizabeth Carney

Book list An official companion book to the Great Migrations television series on the National Geographic channel, this colorful book offers excellent photos of eight migrating animals: Mali elephants, red crabs, monarch butterflies, golden jellyfish, zebras, army ants, wildebeests, and sperm whales. On the double-page spreads carrying information, some sentences are printed in standard paragraph form, while others are singled out and printed in uppercase letters, and sometimes in a form more vertical than horizontal. Within those sentences, some words and phrases are further emphasized with the use of still larger type in different colors. Although these visual elements give the pages a dynamic look, they detract from the experience of actually reading the text and absorbing the content. Still, the writing style is often lively, the maps are excellent, and the photos are exceptionally clear and vibrant. Readers enthralled by the TV series may want to have a look.--Phelan, Carolyn Copyright 2010 Booklist
