Sarah L. Thomson is the author of Stars and Stripes: The Story of the American Flag, a Nebraska Golden Sower Award finalist; all the Wildlife Conservation Society I Can Read Books, including Amazing Tigers!, winner of an Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award; and What Lincoln Said, written with "admirable simplicity" (ALA Booklist). Sarah lives in Portland, Maine.From School Library Journal:
Grade 1-3 - Thomson's superior text sustains readers' attention with interesting facts and apt comparisons, such as, "A killer whale is about as long as a fire truck" and "Baleen is made of the same stuff as your fingernails." The book evokes a sense of having a conversation with a knowledgeable, friendly expert. Words are defined within the text. For beginning readers, this is much easier than referring to a glossary because it keeps the terms in context and allows the text to flow with minimal interruption. Spectacular color photographs add detail and drama, with some intimate close-ups of the magnificent mammals. The book ends with a few pages about whale conservation and raises questions that suggest the need for further investigation, and may serve as a springboard for rich classroom discussion. This is an excellent choice, particularly where hi/lo titles are needed. The author has managed to strike a balance between simplicity and rich content. - Mary Hazelton, Warren Community School and Miller Elementary School, ME
