Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Young readers can find an exciting and growing number of books about whales and dolphins. But what if a child wants to learn about one specific kind of whale without wading through books about all whales? Then this little book, part of the Imagination Library Series "Whales and Dolphins," is just the thing. Beginning with how Right Whales got their name (they are easy to capture, therefore the "right" whales to hunt), this book is packed with information, presented with a pro-conservation tone. Young readers can read that these are baleen whales that eat tiny creatures called copepods, that they play, migrate and are as gentle with boats of human whale watchers as with their young calves . Gentle and Perry include color photos, as well as lists of books and videos to read/view, web sites, quick facts about Right Whales and a glossary of words that appeared in bold face type in the text. This and other books in the series are just right (forgive the pun!) for any young child's library. 2001, Gareth Stevens,

School Library Journal
Gr 2-4-These series titles provide essential information about the physical characteristics and life cycle of these animals. The text on one side faces a full-page illustration, usually a photo. One helpful feature is a half-page "Quick Facts" summary, which includes a visual comparison of the adult animal with a human and a number of vehicles. These charts make the immense size of the whales strikingly clear. The lists of suggested books, videos, and Web sites are marred by errors, such as listing Theodore Taylor's novel, The Hostage, as nonfiction and including a book about a marine biologist simply because her boat is called Orca. More puzzling are the suggested Internet search terms, which sometimes include words not mentioned in the book itself. Rather than opting to purchase the entire set, librarians should see what topics are already covered in their collections. Some species, such as orcas, have had quite a number of books written about them. Nicola Davies's Big Blue Whale (Candlewick, 1997) presents information in a way that avoids the formulaic series approach and look. Still, Gentle and Perry's titles can be helpful for collections in which additional resources are needed to fill gaps.-Kathy Piehl, Minnesota State University, Mankato Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
