Format: Hardcover
Text Content Territories: Indigenous Canadian; Inuit;
Grade Levels: Kindergarten; 1; 2;

In this book, kids will learn how bowheads raise their babies, where they live, what they eat, and other interesting information, like how they can eat when they don’t have any teeth!

"The book is divided into sections covering such topics as: range, skeleton, blowholes, baleen, diet, reproduction, predators, fun facts, and traditional uses. There are typically two short paragraphs per heading, with plenty of detailed diagrams and illustrations.... That the author seemingly anticipates the questions young readers may pose results in an engaging relay of facts. References to Inuit culture are peppered throughout." - CM Magazine
