Booklist Review: "Ages 5-7. Best known for his collaborations with Bill Martin Jr. on lively picture books such as Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (1989), Archambault shows his serious side here, with a melodic poem describing the birth of a humpback whale. He is more concerned with capturing the grace and majesty of the magnificent creature than he is with presenting information, but a few basics are included, woven smoothly into the text without interrupting the rhythmic flow of the verse. Skiles follows suit with pleasing watercolor illustrations that are realistic but not very informative or detailed. Esbensen's Baby Whales Drink Milk (1994) will be of more instructional value, but Archambault's book will provide excellent enrichment and be of interest to teachers searching for material to integrate science and language arts in the curriculum.
