How Old Is a Whale?: Animal Life Spans from the Mayfly to the Immortal Jellyfish

We rated this book:


Animals are creatures that are so different from humans but also act in similar ways. In How Old is a Whale?, many animals are shown and talked about, ranging from ones that live the shortest, such as the mayfly, honey bee, and monarch butterfly, to those who live the longest, such as the Greenland shark, ocean quahog, glass sponge, and immortal jellyfish, along with many others in between. The animals cover all of the “groups”, such as mammals, fish, insects, etc., and cover all across the world. Each animal has a description of itself that includes anything scientific, what it looks like, how it survives, where it lives, etc. Each of the animals includes a colorful and full-page art piece of itself (some look as if they are colored pencils) that make you want to read on for more information. How Old is a Whale? provides information about animals that can help you be smarter than other people or if you need to know it for school, then you will have it at your fingertips.
