Onboard a vessel that would make Jacques Cousteau green with envy, the Cat and Co. take to the high seas in search of whales, dolphins, and porpoises—those aquatic mammals known as cetaceans. While learning how cetaceans stay warm without hair, have teeth or baleen, swim in troops, spyhop, spin, breach, and see via ecolocation, kids are introduced to almost 20 different species—including sperm, right, humpback, and blue whales; Gulf, spectacled, and finless porpoise; and boto, common, hourglass, and bottlenose dolphins. A shipshape selection for summer reading!“The Cat in the Hat’s Learning Library shows young readers that books can be entertaining and educational at the same time. This is a wonderful series!” —Barbara Kiefer, Ph.D., Charlotte S. Huck Professor of Children’s Literature, Ohio State UniversityFrom the Hardcover edition.

Talk about A Whale of a Tale!: All About Porpoises, Dolphins, and Whales (Cat in the Hat's Learning Library)

This book from The Cat in the Hat Learning Library "A Whale of a Tale" is definitely packed full of information. It's not really for the younger audience as I tried to read it to my three year old at bedtime and she kind of got bored and would rather have went to bed then reading it. Because of this I had to reinforce some of the information they were given to her such as telling her which kind of porpoises were which and exaggerating some of the working like "oh my goodness look how big that is!" Anyway it's still a very nice book and a definite great addition to the rest of our Cat in the Hat learning library witches extensively accumulating. Definitely a good book for a new reader.

Dr. Suess books are always a big hit with my son. We have themed weeks for our homeschooling Montessori setup at home. We used these during our Ocean week. A Whale of a Tale was a fun book to read to my son. He really enjoyed reading this book. It was a great addition to our library and I am glad I bought it.
This entire set of books is just a joy. My grandchildren absolutely love all of them, and we read them frequently. Then they talk about going to the beach house and how exciting it is that they know about all of these things! Great learning books.
Fun to read. The book rhymes well and is not only entertaining but surprisingly factual. I enjoyed the writing and illustrations and my 2 year old son enjoyed me reading to him and all the pictures. He also loves learning about new animals.
My 2 year old LOVES this book- he knows how to identify whales and dolphins of all types now and can do so even from random stickers or drawings he sees somewhere else. As a parent who has to read it everyday, its entertaining and you won't get bored...too much :-)
My five year old loved it. My ten year old describes it as "an informative book about whales and other cetaceans (yes, that's his description) and fun to read for almost all ages."

My 3.5 year old son got this book for Christmas along with the Wild Republic's 15" Beluga Whale (he's currently in a whale phase). This is a great book - well written and tells you all you need to know about Dolphins, Porpoises and Whales. He loves reading it at bedtime while cuddled with his stuffed whale. I actually don't mind reading it either - I learned the difference between dolphins and porpoises from this book!
Love the various cat in the hat books that dive into all sorts of different subjects...excellent
