This dynamic book opens with a familiar and joyful sight-a baby bird hatching from an egg that sits in a nest high on a tree. The following pages hold even more delightful surprises, as each spread opens to reveal a different animal and the kind of egg it comes from. Did you know that crocodile mothers walk from the shore to the water holding their eggs in their mouths? That emperor penguin fathers keep their eggs warm by balancing them on their feet? Or that the milkweed plant is the only place a monarch butterfly will lay her eggs? Delicately detailed and boldly coloured, every scene is a work of art that depicts its animal's unique markings and natural habitat. As they pore over each elaborately constructed page, young readers will learn valuable information about how different animals hatch from eggs in the natural world.

Dive into an exploration of these majestic mammals, one of the most fascinating animal species on the planet. You already know that whales aren't fish, but mammals who need to breath and hold their breath under water, just like us humans? And that the blue whale grows to be longer than three buses? In The World of Whales we explore many interesting facts about these fantastic animals, looking at the habits and characteristics that make the multiple species of this family so special. From the stealthy orcas that traverse the seas, to the beautiful songs of humpbacks and the booming calls of the blue whales, we immerse ourselves in the lives of these grandiose swimmers. Join our subaquatic expedition to follow agile fins and flukes, learn about their routines, and marvel as these marine giants breach the ocean's surface.
