Book Review


Humpback whales are one of the largest animals on Earth, known for traveling in pods and singing songs deep in the ocean. This book consists of an introduction to the humpback whale and four chapters. The chapters detail what humpback whales look like, where they live, what they do, and their life cycles. The book makes comparisons and identifies similarities and differences between humpback whales and dolphins, hedgehogs, gray whales, fennec foxes, gibbons, sloths, caribou, and house mice. The book concludes with a culminating chart of the shared characteristics of each of these animals.
