Boersma and Pyenson show the reader how a whale is born, grows, lives, survives, gives birth, lives to see grandchildren and great-grandchildren, and sees how the world around them can change. And not always a change for the better. A once peaceful ocean will one day have the sounds of whalers, oil rigs and finally even ships that go underwater: submarines. You see how the whales and other sea life are injured, killed, and changed with the noises and people that make them. Rich illustrations that compliment and add to the story. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Did you know that Earth is what scientists call “in a Goldilocks Zone?” It is called that because it is in that sweet spot in the planets line up that makes it perfect for life. It is not too hot, or too cold, but just right. Sheneman’s book is a great way to find out why this is, plus our two narrators (Goldilocks and Baby Bear) entertain you the reader as we read along on the adventure. Explore Earth and the other planets (sorry Pluto, you’re still not there) as you have fun. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
