Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debra Briatico
This reference book introduces young readers to the largest creatures on earth and shows them why the whale's colossal size and mysterious habits have fascinated humans for thousands of years. The author uses informative facts, colorful photographs, and scientific text to explain the magnificent world of these gentle ocean giants. Part of the "Animal Close-Ups" series.
Children's Literature - Wendy Ricci
Vivid photographs and informative text teach young children about the different types of baleen whales found around the world. Facts about the whales' habitats, behaviors, food, migration patterns, and reproduction are included. There is also a short history of the involvement of humans in the slaughter of whales, which has brought many species to the brink of extinction. The book concludes with hope for protection, and summarizes the work of some of the well-known wildlife preservation organizations. The "Animal Close-Ups" series includes The Sea Lion, The Frog, The Wolf, The Fox, The Hippopotamus, The Polar Bear, The Giraffe, The Bee, The Deer, The Seal, The Elephant, The Penguin and The Cheetah.
