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.

The artwork is beautiful and fun, there's so much to discover within every page (perfect for repeat readings!) and the conversational mix of English and Spanish makes for a wonderful learning experience. I wish I had had this book as a kid!

A beautiful reminder that kids know love when they feel it, and that love can endure against hateful ideology. This is such a wonderful story with a steadfast, inspirational main character. Love is love.
