La ballena jorobada


De Bernadette Garcia, María José Pérez
Illustrated by Alfredo Cáceres

The humpback whale is a giant animal but at the same time it is the most acrobatic of all whales. It uses its long lateral fins to propel itself and expresses itself through majestic jumps. And although it lives underwater, it is a mammal, so it breathes through its lungs. That's why it gives off those puffs of steam when it rises to the surface. In this beautiful book, boys and girls will be able to learn more about one of the most incredible cetaceans on the planet.
