Secret of the Sleepless Whales…and More!
Ah, the deepest seas … They are still a mysterious place full of surprises. Every time a scientific expedition returns home, it brings new animals and plants, and amazing stories of how those creatures have adapted to their constantly changing environment. In “Secret of the Sleepless Whales…and More”, readers, scientists, and their animal partners embark on an exciting adventure that will reveal some of the secrets of dolphins, killer whales, harbor seals, and Weddell seals. You will find out what killer whale Kasatka and her calf Nakai “don’t do” to survive the first weeks after the baby is born. Popolo the dolphin will reveal to scientists and readers how he manages to dive for long periods of time. Henry the harbor seal will show you why murky, dark waters are no problem for him to find a meal and Weddell seals will flush out a nice fish for you! With research color photos, a hands-on activity, and enough references to satisfy eager-for-more readers, “Secret of the Sleepless Whales…and More” will bring you closer to the mysterious ocean. I invite you to visit my website to find more secrets revealed in this series of books: Animal Secrets Revealed!
