Home at Last
A Song of Migration
Publication Date: November 1998
Categories: Animals - General
Some animals have only one home. They may travel just a few inches, yards, or miles from that spot. But others migrate great distances. They spend part of their time in one home and part of it in another. On the journey in between, they may swim, crawl, fly, or walk a mile, a thousand miles, or even halfway around the earth.
April Pulley Sayre's lyrical text conveys the wonder that surrounds the mystery of migration. She writes about a variety of animals, from monarch butterflies to blue whales. With exquisite detail, the graceful illustrations by Alix Berenzy depict the animals on their journeys, and the book's last pages provide factual information about each animal's life and habits.
April Pulley Sayre is the author of several books for young readers. She makes her home in South Bend, Indiana.
Alix Berenzy is the illustrator of Into the Sea, by Brenda Z. Guiberson, an acclaimed book about the life of the endangered sea turtle, as well as Rapunzel and A Frog Prince (all Holt). Ms. Berenzy lives in Benton, Pennsylvania.
