Have you noticed? Fall migration has begun. It’s often less obvious than the spring migration when animals feel an urgency to get to their breeding grounds. As science educator Don Salvtore said,
“We all see animals for a season or two, perhaps in our own backyard, and then they’re gone. We don’t think of where they came from or where they go.”
In the book Going Home children gain new appreciation of these animals and the amazing journeys that many animals take twice a year.
Going home, going home, we feel the urge to go.
Its time for us to travel on, it’s something we just know.
Many of us look for food, others find a mate.
And when the weather starts to change, there is no time to wait.
