This is a good book to introduce the concept of migration to young children. I especially enjoy the teacher help pages at the end of the book presenting additional information and questions that can be used in a classroom setting. This book would be appropriate to use with small preschool age children, that will love the colorful pictures, as well as older elementary children that will benefit from the text.
