Go Whale-Watching Without Leaving Your Home
New free children’s photo book on whales by James Mayrose
Dive into the depths of the ocean and witness the wonderful world of whales without ever leaving home. James Mayrose’s new book, which is being given away for free, Whales…Facts and Cool Pictures, will take you to the heart of the ocean so you can watch and get to know these amazing mammals.
This free photo book for kids is also something adults will enjoy because it features interesting facts about whales most people may not know:
- Whales talk to each other by singing.
- Not all whales have dorsal fins.
- The blue whale is the largest animal on the planet. It’s larger than a dinosaur.
- Blue whales can grow to 100 feet, which is bigger than a thousand adults combined or 3-0 elephants.
- A small child can fit inside a blue whale’s major artery.
- Gray whales are very friendly and curious.
- Gray whales carry around as much as 400 lbs. of sea lice and barnacles on their skin.
More importantly, Whales…Facts and Cool Pictures is for children. The stunning photos were carefully picked to showcase the beauty of these sea creatures and help readers get a better insight on what these mysterious mammals really are. It’s not every day kids (and adults) encounter whales and it would take a lot of money and effort to see one up close. This free book will make it easier to introduce whales to kids.
“I handpicked each photo in the book. What is strange is that the closer and more vivid the picture of whales is, the more mysterious they seem,” explains the author.
“I included photos that capture the majesty of their raw power, such as one of a humpback whale crashing to the surface of the ocean. And I included photos that capture their innocence and fragility, such as one of a baby grey whale nuzzling up to a dingy.”
People’s understanding of whales could be limited to the things they see in some movies and television shows. Most text books offer inadequate information that can paint a clearer picture on whales’ existence. They somewhat elusive since they live so far down. With this book, one will be able to take a peek in their lives.
“Whales are perhaps the most mysterious animal on the planet. They spend their lives hidden in the depths of the ocean. The grey whale, for example, circumnavigates the globe, from frigid icecap waters to the warmth of the Mexican Peninsula.”
Furthermore, this free photo book isn’t just for entertainment. Author Mayrose aims to help raise awareness for whales and for the appreciation for life. Whales are among the threatened animals on the planet and by getting children to know them they may develop a strong sense of gratitude for these huge marine animals.
“Whales have withstood harsh poaching over the centuries by humans. But today humans are trying to nurse threatened populations back to health. I discuss this so children can develop an appreciation for the sanctity of life,” he says.
