    A picture book about our own Pacific Northwest orcas It is beautifully illustrated and you learn a lot about orcas in the text, which still reads like a story, rather than non fiction There is a nice informational section in the back with further resources to study orcas I think this will be especially popular here in Washington

    The text was boring, misleading and sometimes inaccurate The illustrations did not make up for the text s faults.


  4. Al Al says:

    A fair amount of anthropomorphism in this book that made it less informational, but for reluctant readers, the presentation of a story rather than straightforward facts might be intriguing.

    A new baby orca whale is born under the watchful eyes of Granny,a one hundred year old matriarch, and the rest of the pod While following this true story of the whale family, the reader learns interesting details about whales and whale societies the beautiful illustrations enhance the story OK, my friend wrote this book, but I think it s fabulous


  8. Shelli Shelli says:

    I enjoyed how this book paid reverence to Granny Whale How without her knowledge, experience and training the pod would suffer This book could be a valuable resource for elementary age students when writing an animal report.


  9. Angela Scott Angela Scott says:

    I think this book was trying to capture how majestic whales can be, but I think you or the child you are reading to would have to be really into whales to enjoy this book It is very wordy and factual and its lack of plot would be hard to capture a child s attention.
