Anna's family are migrant workers traveling each season, and she wonders what it would be like to have a real home and to stay in one place.

I thought this book was great. There is so many great visions that reading creates for children as well as the illustrations. I would use this book in the classroom because there are so many activities that could be connected to this story.

Migrnat is a great book about a young girl who compares herself to a jack-Rabbit who lives in a dark who and always changes where it is living. while growing up she was always moving around and wondered what it would be like to live in one place. As she asked her mother why they moved so much her mother wasn't sure what to say beside that they were migrating. Their family was migrating just as the geese fly south for the winter and the bears hunker down in the winter. Everybody migrats at some point in their lives their family just does a little bit more.
This book is a great book for any children who are moving a lot and or are interested about migrating and animals that may migrant. I would recommend this book to children under the ages of ten. This book takes some thought and allows the older children to understand the concept more.

Book description
Haiku summary

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0888999755, Hardcover)

Anna is the child of Mennonites from Mexico, who have come north to harvest fruit and vegetables. Sometimes she feels like a bird, flying north in the spring and south in the fall, sometimes like a jackrabbit in an abandoned burrow, since her family occupies an empty farmhouse near the fields, sometimes like a kitten, as she shares a bed with her sisters . . . But above all Anna wonders what it would be like to be a tree rooted deeply in the earth, watching the seasons come and go, instead of being like a "feather in the wind."

(retrieved from Amazon Mon, 30 Sep 2013 14:02:27 -0400)

Anna, the daughter of migrant farm workers, feels like different animals as she follows her family as they travel looking for work.
