educational products: Getting to Know the Whales

This book was written one hour at a time for 5 years. It is a book that had to be written because of the author and illustrator’s passion for whales. Whale biologists have readily contributed data to make this book come to life for children. Hundreds of students and teachers have used this book and have added valuable editing comments. The book is broken into three parts: Whale Biology, Whale Research, Whaling and Conservation.
