Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Children of all ages are interested in whales; now beginning readers can read about them in this "I Can Read" book. The text, along with clear photo illustrations and in consultation with the Wildlife Conservation Society, includes a wide range of facts about whales of all kinds as well as information about feeding behavior, communication and humankind's impact on these wondrous creatures. Especially appealing is the way the author puts facts into terms that young children can readily understand—the blue whale is as long as a basketball court, its eyes as big as softballs, etc. The book includes some information about the Wildlife Conservation Society as well. The other book in this series of nonfiction beginning readers is about tigers. Let's hope these are but a start of an extensive animal series that will be welcomed in classrooms, libraries, wherever children learn to read. 2005, HarperCollins, Ages 4 to 6.
—Judy Crowder
ALA Booklist
“Packed with information . . . a great addition to the easy reading section, where nonfiction titles are sometimes scare.”
