A basic exploration of the appearance, behavior, and habitat of whales, the large ocean animals. Also included is a story from folklore explaining why New Zealanders traditionally rode whales. From humpbacked camels to drumming woodpeckers, and from fast-flying hummingbirds to slow-moving tortoises, the world of animals is wonderfully diverse. This popular and newly expanded series continues traveling the planet to study these and other fascinating animals. Beautiful photos are paired with accessible text to examine the featured creatures appearance, habitat, behaviors, and life cycle. Each book also presents a folk story that people have used to help explain the animals appearance or behavior.

About the Author:

Kate is an experienced writer of children's non-fiction books.

From Booklist:

The cover of each new title in the Amazing Animals series—a big, beautiful close-up of the subject—will immediately draw in animal lovers. Large, appealing photos on each spread include more vivid close-ups, showing both animals’ faces as well as the creatures in action. Across from the photos, the text is laid out cleanly in a large, clear font, and the sentences are simple and easy to read. Photo captions, meanwhile, add interesting facts, while occasional vocabulary words are defined at the bottoms of pages. At the end of each book, the author retells a myth or story about that kind of animal. The story in Whales comes from the Maori tradition in New Zealand. The books’ overall content occasionally feels a bit thin, with generic cultural material (for example, about whale watching) taking up space that might have been used for more substantive animal facts. However, these books do present the basics in an engaging way appropriate for young readers. Grades 1-3. --Miriam Aronin
