"Join Whaley on his big adventure in the ocean as he meets whales of all different sizes.
Written by 5 year old Alexander Luke and presented by his grandmother, award-winning children's author Carole P. Roman, this oceanic adventure of whale sized proportions will teach youngsters about the different whales that live in the oceans."
This picture book, marketable to children age 3-5, is certain to entertain and educate children about the enormous mammals of the sea - the whales.
As young Whaley, a blue whale, explores the ocean he encounters several varieties of whale including the Orca, which is actually considered a dolphin; a humpback whale who likes to sing the same song hour after hour; and the beluga whale who lives only in the cold Arctic ocean. Whaley's Big Adventure introduces each whale in turn with a brief factoid and the author's very own artistic rendition of the variety of whales.
Whaley's Big Adventure is an entertaining and informative book sure to please young children, particularly those fascinated by these enormous creatures of the seas. Young Alexander Luke was assisted in the preparation of this picture book by his grandmother and, between the two of them, they've created a cute easy to read and understand story that children will surely want to explore again and again.
