Summary
Join a pack of woolly mammoths as they trek south for the winter, braving fierce storms, deadly predators, and raging rivers while making their slow journey across the gorgeous unspoiled lands of this continent until finally they reach their goal. With the same jouncy and joyous rhythms of her youngest picture book texts, Lisa Wheeler draws readers into the mystery of prehistory and of one of the most awesome beasts to ever walk the earth: the massive, hairy--legendary--wonderful woolly mammoth! This factually based book includes an author's note. Here come the woolly mammoths!
Summary
Describes the migratory behavior, physical characteristics, and habitats of the prehistoric animal, a relative of the modern-day Indian elephant
