Before reading this, I can honestly say I have never heard of a Narwhal. This non-fiction book for children ranging in age from 4-8 features a Narwhal. A narwhal is an Artic whale with a nine foot long tooth jutting from its head that resembles a unicorn's horn. Halfmann's newest book follows the Narwhal as it journey's from its summer home near land to its winter home deep in the Artic Sea.
The book is chuck full of information about the Narwhal and is sure to be of great interest for children who love wildlife and learning about new kinds of animals. Told in story format, children will find the reading easy, as the format is more picture-book than non-fiction. You know the information to be truthful and realistic, as the book is part of the Smithsonian Oceanic Collection! I'm definitely glad to be adding this to my (someday) classroom library! Children sponge up this information and will be sharing it with each other for days to come after reading!
