This is a very easy book to read though the concepts and information are packed into the pages. The pictures are interesting and the words are understandable! I loved reading about baby whales and their journey into adulthood; I definitely recommend this book!

I think this is one of my new favorite books. I mean, we all know whales are mammals and therefore they must nurse their young, but how many books actually talk about it. And how does a baleen whale nurse? Well, this book talks about it. It also has other really great information about whales, mostly humpback whales.

We've read this one since Bea was a toddler. Too simple for her now - but still an excellent book as are most in this series.
