Book Review - FACE TO FACE WITH WHALES by Flip and Linda Nicklin

About the Book
You slip over the side of your boat, diving deep into the watery realm of the Earth's largest creature. Then the whale starts to sing, just feet away from you. You record the sounds, hoping one day to understand their language.

Meet these intelligent, social creatures in their natural habitat, learn about the different kinds of whales; discover how we can help them, and how we can protect their environment.

In the "Face to Face With Animals" series, National Geographic experts take you into the wild! Go behind the scenes with the people who research and photograph wild animals.

Each book includes "Tips from the experts", a "facts at a glance" reference section, a scientific experiment, a glossary, and a "find out more" section all stimulate participation.

My Take on the Book

I loved this book the moment I opened it because I love whales. I have had the privilege to be in Hawaii when the whales were there and to be on a sail boat that took me close to these magnificent creatures. You cannot imagine the excitement at seeing these gentle mammals.
Flip has photographs and text to help the reader learn about whales. He give us specific information about their eating, family groups, and how like humans they are in so many ways. He tells us of the long journey they take from Alaska to Hawaii and how they raise their young before they venture back to Alaska's waters.
Some whales actually stay in frigid waters too.
Flip shows up how we humans need to be concerned about whales. They are in our chain of life. If the ocean is a safe place, if ships do not endanger their existence , if hunting is deleted, if their food is not contaminated,then we will save these gracious creatures .
Flip and Linda give you additional information at the end of the book as to how you can help.
Do share this informational book with your family. Enjoy!
If this sounds like something that you would like in your own library you can find it on Amazon!
