The Whale Who Swam Through Time

by Alex Boersma and Nick Pyenson is an incredible story about the life of a single bowhead whale, the world’s longest living mammal. When the whale is born, in the frigid waters of the Arctic Ocean, wooden ships with tall masts sail the seas and whaling is a common danger the whale and her mother need to avoid. As the whale grows in size and age, readers travel through the ocean and across the whale’s astonishing 200-year life span, watching through her eyes as the sea changes around her. This is a thought-provoking, beautiful book that illustrates just a fraction of the ocean’s complexity. Readers of all ages will be enthralled! (Non-Fiction)
