The book is about big things and the universe. If Mount Everest was empty inside you could put millions of whales inside. The Milky Way is the galaxy. The Blue Whale is bigger than all the other animals. Mount Everest is bigger than the Blue Whale. The Earth is bigger than Mount Everest. The Sun is bigger than the Earth. The Milky Way is bigger than the sun. The Universe is bigger than everything. The blue whale?s tail has flippers called flukes.

My favorite part is when the whale was bigger than all the other animals. I like the blue whale because it?s the biggest animal on the Earth. I like the pictures because they were colorful. I like the book because it tells you how big stuff is. This is my favorite book because I like whales. I like all kinds of animals.

I recommend this book to all the kids because it was a nice book and they could learn something. This is a good book for people who like whales.
