Whales is an educational book about different types of whales. Like their names and sizes.
  Brionna-Fadely | Feb 16, 2017 |
I liked this book for multiple reasons. The language is written at primary school age level. The vocabulary is easily defined at a level appropriate for children. The illustrations in the book are unusually interesting. There are multiple pages in the book that are a clear plastic feel. on these pages it gives a child a different tactile feature in the book, while giving them an inside look at the whale whether it is of a mom whale pregnant or how a whale digests its food. The book is written in a 3rd person non fiction format that pushes readers to understand basic facts about whales. This book would be a great introductory text on whales or just underwater creatures in general. The main idea of the book is for children to have a greater understanding of different kinds of whales.
