What I Loved: The full page photos of the different types of whales were beautiful. I loved that they were real photos, not cartoons.

How I Felt: This is a perfect board book for a young child. There are very few words on each page, which will keep a young listener’s attention. Each whale has a sentence providing a fun fact about each whale. I learned a thing or two, so I’m sure a child will be fascinated with the information!
