This book amazed me and I learned a lot about the blue whale. I didn't know that they are so uncommon. This book talks about the life cycle of the blue whale. How they eat, travel, give birth and live during different seasons. The illustrations were beautiful. (Nonfiction)
Really well done!! 4.5 stars for children's nonfiction. My husband and I learned a lot and really enjoyed it.

Many interesting facts about the blue whale. All children are sure to learn some new information!
An engaging introduction to the life and habits of the blue whale.
