Whistling Wings [SCM]

by Laura Goering Author

(From Amazon): Marcel, a young tundra swan, is tired from the first half of a winter migration. One thousand miles is a long way to fly--too long for Marcel, so he hides in the rushes to stay behind while his parents and the flock continue south. But with the lake nearly frozen over, he soon realizes that he is not cut out for life on ice. Other animals offer advice about how to survive the winter, but their ways of living aren't right for the swan. Hungry and scared, he falls asleep only to be awakened by a big surprise! A swan doesn't want to migrate For Creative Minds Section Includes: Tundra swan fun facts, Tundra swan life cycle sequencing activity, Migration fun facts, Animal adaptation matching activity, Tundra swans, Muskrats, Eagles, Raccoons Thanks to Roland J.
