Since publishing its first issue in 1888, National Geographic has brought the world to us through beautifully photographed articles from exotic places. In 1975, the flagship journal started National Geographic Kids to bring the awe and wonder of the natural world to children. The organization has now put its name on a series of books about the great migrations, aimed at helping children understand the movement of animal groups. These books carry National Geographic's hallmark photography on every page of "easy to read books for curious kids!"

This series of books brings natural science to early readers in an interesting and engaging way. With teachers facing pressures to improve math and reading scores, science has far too often been subjugated to a lesser status in elementary curricula. It is encouraging to see a series that puts science into the hands of beginning readers.
