Staff Reviews


 

You may know that whales are mammals, but did you know they evolved from land mammals? Did you know that the world’s largest whale, the Blue Whale, is 98 feet long, and the smallest, the Pygmy Right Whale, is only 21 feet long? (That’s the size of an adult female Great White Shark.) I know, so many cool facts, and this book is full of them! Along with great illustrations, it’s hard to put down.
