Children’s Books about Migration
Photographer and award-winning author April Pulley Sayre and her husband Jeff Sayre have been observing warblers during their annual spring migration for years. Now they share their experiences with this gorgeous book for children. Warblers are tiny and elusive birds, but the Sayres have captured many wonderful photographs to fill the pages of the book. As she explains on her website , they chose photographs of birds in action to give children the experience of viewing live warblers in nature, rather than choosing those that are simply posed well. Warbler Wave is simply wonderful.

The art work hands down was some of the most beautiful I had seen from children's books. The passion was evident. Furthermore, as a parent and an educator, my wonder of these migrating animals flourished beyond my anticipation, which made the learning with my sons all the more authentic and enjoyable to include not only life sciences but ecology and geography as well. I reviewed at least 25 books on the topic. The below list includes my favorites for my children ages 5 and 3.

Actually, animals have different ways of dealing with the winter weather. Some animals adapt to their surroundings by turning white so they blend in to the snow. Others hibernate the winter away.
Birds have been a subject of children's stories since farther back than memory can stretch. The feathered animals offer up the inspiration of flight and travel, the mystery of migration, the love and care of parents toward young, the daring of leaving home for one's own adventures and so many other lessons. We've selected 10 books, some fiction and some for the field, that connect children to birds and to all the aspects of nature, wilderness, and of course daily life lessons that bird-watching can build. Many of the most common birds from coast to coast are listed in this guide, helping children to learn more about the birds they spot right in their own back yards. Accessible and informative, the book will engage children in the fun of bird-watching.
