Here Come the Humpbacks!

book cover

For those lucky enough to have the experience, it's a great thrill to see whales in their natural habitats. This picture book is the next best thing for children.

Written by April Pulley Sayre and illustrated by Jamie Hogan, the book follows a mother humpback and her calf on the great annual whale swim from the Caribbean to summer feeding grounds off the coast of New England and back, one of the longest migrations of any mammal. Sayre provides information on how humpback whales got their name, sing and breathe. She also points out the dangers they face, including ocean pollution (Charlesbridge).
