Reviewed by: John L. Hoh, Jr.

This book is part of the HarperCollins An I Can Read Book series. The language is simple enough for beginning readers to read by themselves.

This book looks at whales, describes whales, and how they live, swim, and eat. It looks at dangers whales face and how humans are working at protecting whales. Colorful photographs make the experience fun and exciting for kids learning to read and learning about whales.

Some of the amazing whale facts you'll learn include "A killer whale is about as long as a fire truck," "A blue whale is as long as a basketball court," and "Baleen is made of the same stuff as your fingernails." Well, OK, the book doesn't specify the fire truck for size comparision, but that's pretty big nonetheless.

The Wildlife Conservation Society contributed to the contents in this book. As such the book contains features about whale conservation.

Teachers will find this a useful book in the classroom. My son enjoyed reading all about whales in this book. The book has activities that aid in learning about these majestic creatures of the sea.
