School Library Connection - Karen M. Smith, Head of Children’s Services, Livonia Public Library, MI

"With beautiful illustrations and simple text, this series about migration for the purpose of reproduction will make a nice classroom discussion-starter. . . .The format will appeal to all collections; however, the series is very readable and will be enjoyed by many children." - School Library Connection

NSTA Recommends - Judy Kraus, Science Teacher, Hyde Park Middle School

"Acrylic illustrations by Christina Wald bring the red crabs of Christmas Island to life on each page. A mass of red covering the forest floor or small red crabs decorating the shoreline are beautifully drawn. A map marking Christmas Island in the Indian Ocean gives the reader a frame of reference for the amazing journey. Fast facts, a glossary, critical thinking questions, and additional resources are available at the conclusion of the text, providing extensions." - NSTA Recommends
