When you were a brand new baby, I bet you slept a lot.  Maybe your mother might not agree but most newborns spend the majority of their days sleeping.  That's not true of whales though. During their first month of life, baby whales don't sleep at all!  And neither do their mothers.  They must be so tired. This book is full of information about whales and dolphins that you may not have known.  Like the fact that mother dolphins teach their babies to use sponges to scour the ocean floor looking for food.  The sponge protects their nose from getting scraped up. Find out more about these creatures as well as how scientists study them in Secret of the Sleepless Whales.
SUBJECTS:     Marine mammals.
