Review: When Whales Cross the Sea by: Sharon Katz Cooper

Swim alongside one particular gray whale as she makes the longest migration journey of any mammal on Earth. A heart-warming story and realistic illustrations captivate and educate.
For ages 5-9. From the Extraordinary Migrations series.
*Vivid, realistic illustrations allow for scenes difficult to get in photos
*Story-like narrative focuses on one specific animal to engage and promote empathy
*Subjects are a blend of popular and less-well-known animals.

We received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.

K and I both enjoyed this story. We got to follow a mother whale on her journey to warmer waters. This is a very informative book that is filled with how much whales eat, how long of a journey they take getting from cold waters to warmer waters. K's favorite part within the story was the calf, and how he drank milk from his mother. K found that to be interesting. The illustrations were beautiful done and went perfect with the story.
This is one book I would love to own in paperback and add to our book collections. I do believe this is one book we will be reading again.
