Did you know blue whales weight around 160ftons or about the same as 55 hippos and that their mouths are so big that 50 people could stand in it ? Did you also know that baby blue whales drink about 50 gallons of their mothers’ milk every year ? This gorgeous non-fiction picture book aims to draw children into the life and world of this enormous whale by situating facts within a familiar context that is fun and engaging. We get the actual size of an eye right on the page, and we understand its body size in relation to trucks, cars, milk bottles and hippos! Other titles available: « The polar bear », « The elephant »
