Item Description...
Adelina is a ten-year-old girl who lives in a quiet fishing village in Baja California, Mexico. Adelina has some very special friends-the gray whales-that come every year to spend the winter months and give birth to their calves in the protected lagoon near her home.

This beautifully photographed photo-essay introduces young readers to a very special way of life, offering insights into the world of these giant mammals of the sea.

Text and photographs by Richard Sobol.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I love this book!  Mar 16, 2007
I have actually been to the San Ignacio Lagoon where the whales come and where Adelina lives. This book is a very nice story and a nice introduction to gray whales and their lives, also the life of a young girl in rural Mexico. The photos are beautiful and it's well written from the viewpoint of the little girl. I bought this book in the town of San Ignacio after going whale-watching myself near where Adelina lives. Any kid interested in whales or biology or the ocean or Mexico would enjoy it I think.
Whales...up-close and personal  Jun 24, 2004
Some beautiful photographs of whales grace this book that introduces readers to Adelina, a girl from Laguna San Ignacio, a small village in Baja California. Readers see a glimpse of her life, hear her grandfather's story about his first encounter with a gray whale, and learn of the whale watching tours that her family conducts for tourists. The whales often come right up to the small boats, affording the people and whale a close-up view of each other. The gray whales winter there and raise their young before heading back to cooler waters in the spring. This book, told as a story, contains ecological, sociological, and zoological information. There is a forward by Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.
