Woolly Mammoth Journey - A

by Miller, Debbie S.

Van Zyle, Jon (Illustrator)



A Woolly Mammoth Journey journeys back in time to follow a pack of woolly mammoths across rivers, plains, and glacial ridges on their annual migration to familiar feeding grounds. Along the way, a new calf is born and learns to walk, use her trunk to get food, and play with other young mammoths in the herd. As the seasons pass, the mammoths prepare for the long winter and try to protect each other from predators and the changing climate. Packed with information and featuring vibrant full-color illustrations, A Woolly Mammoth Journey brings the far-distant past—and its long-lost wildlife—strikingly close. A classic once again in print, A Woolly Mammoth Journey is perfect for second- and third-graders and a great read-aloud for younger children.

There is danger, drama, and joy as Miller describes the birth of a new calf, encounters with predators and nomadic hunters, and the rigors of annual migration. Acrylic paintings capture the essence of the enormous “walking haystacks” and the harsh terrain in which they lived . . . . Vivid writing and equally impressive illustrations make this an excellent science title for young readers.
