An introduction to the physical characteristics and habits of blue whales is an exemplary science book for young children. Straightforward, yet lyrical, sentences are arranged in a logical order and meaning is often enhanced by the size or location of the typeface. The illustrations are at once whimsical and scientific; for example, the same boy and girl are seen standing or swimming next to the whale throughout to indicate scale. An excellent choice as a read-aloud for young children, it even includes an index! (Ages 3-7)
