A young girl goes on the trip of a lifetime! She joins two marine biologists whale-watching at sea in a small sailboat. First, they drop a microphone down into the depths and listen to the whales' beautiful songs. Then they watch the waters for signs of a whale coming up to breathe. They watch and wait and finally their patience is rewarded. They spy two fountains sprays in the distance. As one of the scientists dives into the water to take an underwater picture, the girl has the thrill of seeing a whale breathe right next to her boat. This is a wonderful story to encourage young readers. Full of action, adventure and lots of scientific and historical information about whales, it will capture and sustain the reader's interest to the very end.
