This story is all about whales. Mother whales are gentle with their babies. Baby sperm whales are the smallest whales and blue whales are the biggest animals on earth. A narwhale's horn can grown to be about 10 feet long. There are tooth whales and baleen whales. Scientists learned that whales make clickety clack sounds.

My favorite part of the story is when humpback whales sing because they make a beautiful sound. My least favorite character is the shark because it tries to attack the baby whale. The story has pictures that help tell the story.

I think others should read it because it is interesting.
