Description: Beautifully illustrated and with clear, simple text, The Journey of a Whale describes the life cycle and annual migration of the gray whale. Each double-page spread shows the whale at a particular activity during its journey from icy polar oceans to warmer seas -- swimming with its pod or group, feeding on krill, spraying huge jets of water from their blowholes, or caring for a newborn calf. Anatomical features, such as baleen plates and tail flukes, are labeled. Readers learn that whales are mammals that live in the sea, and can be as much as 50 feet long and weigh up to 35 tons. During the fall migration, whales mate and the text explains how the baby whale will take one year to grow inside its mother, and how it will spend the winter feeding and growing strong for the next year's migration. A Migration Map, glossary of Whale Words, and an index form an information section for children to practice reference skills.
