In this latest book by acclaimed science writer April Pulley Sayre, young readers follow along as a mother humpback whale and her calf make their annual trek from the warm waters of the Caribbean to their summer feeding grounds off the coast of New England and back again. Within this extraordinary story of migration, Sayre provides information about how humpback whales breathe, sing, and how they got their name—a secondary layer of text expands upon the more intricate details.

But aside from the basics about the humpback whale species, HERE COME THE HUMPBACKS! also delves into the dangers these whales face—from other mammals and sea life such as hungry orcas, to man-made threats like pollution and giant ships.

Jamie Hogan’s stunning, rich pastel illustrations complement Sayre’s text beautifully, and make this book a great choice for a read-aloud in the classroom, library, or at home.

About the Author:

April Pulley Sayre is the award-winning author of dozens of books, including MEET THE HOWLERS!; TURTLE, TURTLE, WATCH OUT!; and ONE IS A SNAIL, TEN IS A CRAB, an ALA Notable Book. She lives in South Bend, Indiana.

From Booklist:

This is a lyrical and seemingly straightforward tale of a mother humpback and her calf migrating from the warm winter waters of the Caribbean Sea to a summer feeding area off the coast of New England. Yet the simple text delivers a subtle and timely message of conservation, not to mention a fable about perseverance and courage. Along their way, the humpbacks encounter all manner of dangerous and wondrous obstacles, including a brush with a hungry orca, an encounter with a boat of whale watchers, and ocean liners crossing their migratory path. The descriptive text (One slaps the escort whale with a flipper. Bonk! Smack!) and Hogan’s panoramic, cool-colored charcoals make this obvious read-along fodder, but both elements are also detailed enough to engage independent learners. As is becoming increasingly common, the story is punctuated with nonfiction facts in a smaller font, regarding everything from humpback songs to whale-watching rules. A little something for everyone here. Grades K-3. --Anderson, Erin
