The Blue Whale - Jenni Desmond

Many picture books are for older kids—and The Blue Whale (Enchanted Lion, $17.95) exemplifies this statement. Author and illustrator Jenni Desmond has created a book that brings information about the world’s largest animal into perspective for young minds. Instead of just telling us the size of the blue whale’s mouth, she paints the creature’s mouth with the 50 people who can stand inside it. Rather than simply state that baby blue whales drink 50 gallons of their mother’s milk per day, she paints in 50 gallon milk bottles to demonstrate the fact. Her illustrations are warm and inviting to kids of all ages, from little ones being read to by an adult to older children reading on their own. Ages 5-8
