On the Move with Christmas Island Red Crabs

From the Series Amazing Migrations

In this title, early fluent readers follow three male red crabs as they migrate from the forest to the beach in order to mate in the spring. Read along as Cooper, Carlos, Caleb, and millions of other red crabs, avoid predators and cross roads on their journey, then make it to the beach where they dig burrows and meet female crabs to produce young. Vibrant illustrations and carefully leveled text will engage young readers in a supportive educational fiction reading experience.
