    1. I did not know that whales evolved so much and how in the beginning whales had fur. Whales have evolved over millions of years and over those million years they began to start swimming in water and catching food underwater. I also thought this book was pretty simple and it explains well how whales used to look like so long ago. I thought it was a good book.

    2. A "Just So Story":As a child of 6 or 7 I would have given my eye-teeth for a book like this. Even at an early age I, like a lot of children in this day and age, loved reading about animals of all kinds and often wondered about their origins. Where did they come from? How did they get there? If you have a budding naturalist in your family, or your classroom, then this book may be just the ticket to introduce them to the wonders of evolution and whales. Faith McNulty's informative, non-technical, [...]

    3. I was brutally forced to do unwanted research on this prolonged hellish book How Whales Walked on Land.It was about how the whales were all like “hey, imma walk all up on yo land” to “yo brolinda i'm gonna be goin swimmin and taken yo air and stuff”I learned that whales use to walk on land and stuff so yeah… thats pretty cool.The art of the book looked like some older man artist bro drew it.The info was put in step one to step two order so it was really easy to learn and read and whate [...]

    4. Young Reader Reaction: I like the book because I really love learning about sea animals. I learned a lot about the blue whale and killer whale (also called "Orca"). The front cover and title really interested me. It has such nice illustrations. I would say people eight years old and over can read this book because they can understand the book more.Pros: Beautiful illustrations and lots of facts about whales will keep kids interested in reading and learning.To read our full review, go to The Read [...]

    5. We re-read this book with my younger son after reading a book about whales, dolphins and sharks, all of which are his favorite animals, but having a lot of questions. Both boys love this book and love to think about how whales, unlike sharks, descended from animals that lived on land, and the connection between their own bones and the functional and vestigial limb bones. the artwork is beautiful and allows for a lot of discussion about the subject.

    6. we liked this book, which had great illustrations and successfully conveyed how whales evolved. The highlight was the illustration showing the complete wrist, palm, and toes all inside the front flippers of the modern whale.

    7. I am fascinated by the story of the origins of whales. Loved this quiet, beautifully illustrated version.
