The stupendous migrations undertaken by more than 25 of the world's animals, including humans.

This beautifully illustrated picture book looks at the epic migrations that mammals, birds, fish and insects undertake every year, crossing hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles to reach breeding grounds, nesting sites and food sources. From the epic migration of the enormous humpback whale to the staggering determination of the tiny hummingbird and the mass migration of millions of wildebeests, each animal tells its own "micro-story" -- the reason that it travels so very far and the risks of the journey.

Migration data describe the animals' migration routes and an earth map lets readers find and follow the animals' long and dangerous journeys.

We Travel So Far is a unique and beautifully presented introduction to a part of the lives of many animals which is usually missing from children's picture books.
