Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Susie Wilde
Children who are learning to read can learn about their world with the "Lets-Read-And-Find-Out Science" series. The series is excellently conceived so that the developmental reading and interest level are matched. Many outstanding nonfiction writers and illustrators are contributing to the series. For ages three to six there are Stage 1 books which include Esbensen's Baby Whales Drink Milk. It clearly illustrates that whales while they spend their lives in the sea are not fish but mammals.

    Great Book!!

    My child just loves this book, I have read it aloud on several occasions and she reads it every day and takes it everywhere we go. At 3 she is well aware of the care of a baby whale and fully enjoys the illustrations.
