Whales to the Rescue

How Whales Help Engineer the Planet

Written by Adrienne Mason, Illustrated by Kim Smith

This is a interesting and fact filled book about whales and their impact on our planet. It provides lots of information on how whales live and how they affect their environment and ours as well. It has quite a lot of text, but also colorful illustrations and fun facts. This would be a great choice for the older student interested in whales or environmental issues. It does a good job of explaining global warming without being preachy or using fear. There is a whole section on whale poop that most kids would find gross and interesting. Overall this is a great book to learn about whales, our interdependence on the natural world, and how important our oceans are. I recommend it for 4th grade and up.
