Bindi Wildlife Adventures: A Whale of a Time by Chris Kunz

Random House, 2010. ISBN 9781864718508.
(Age 8-10) Highly recommended. This exciting new episode in the Wildlife Adventure series is full of environmental and boating information and includes the usual animal fact file at the back, this time on whales. 12 year old twins visiting from England are excited to join Bindi Irwin on a whale watching trip in a catamaran. The kids get involved in a boating accident, an environmental disaster threatening marine life along the coast and one experience of sea sickness while they encounter beautiful humpback whale pods. Highly recommended for eight to ten year olds but especially suited for children with concern for the environment.
