If you are doing your holiday shopping early, here is one that would make a great gift pick. My kids love to ask a million questions about any subject they can think of. The Blue Whale is a great book for the inquisitive. It will answer any questions kiddos have about these fascinating creatures. The beautiful pictures illustrate the ins and outs of whale anatomy and different whale species. This is less of a story as much as a collection of facts that teach young readers all about whales.
