His children's book The Animal Family was named a Newbery Honor Book, and his translation of The Three Sisters was produced by The Actors Studio Theatre. This story is so simply told, yet so beautiful that it has stayed with me all my life (30 years and counting since I first read it). Before the internet came along, I made it a point to locate used copies through the booksellers' network, and kept several copies on hand so that I could give them away whenever I met a special child who I thought would appreciate it.

The Animal Family books are not just written by their authors. Each book helps to make the world of nature that much more real, more understandable, and more valuable to children.

I enjoyed "The whale family book", because it kept me interested in the different aspects of a whale's life. It also gave me insight into a world that is different from mine.

The author, Cynthia D'Vincent traveled in her boat "Varua", to follow these magnificent creatures (whales), to learn more about them. She learned that humpback whales are smarter than we give them credit for. She saw with her own eyes that whales that whales have developed many different techniques for feeding. One of the Humpback's most ingenious feeding techniques is the bubble net. The whale will be underneath their prey, when all of the sudden they will blow a large bubble net, which is a large amount of bubbles that traps the prey in the bubbles, and then the whale will burst through the surface of the water and while the prey is surrounded by the bubbles the whales devour their prey. The whales travel in groups back and forth between the cold seas of Alaska, to the warm breezy waters of the Hawaiian Islands, every year during their migration period. On the way back from their birthing grounds the school of whales separate into groups of three, a male (bull), a female (cow), and a baby (calf). The male protects the baby and its mother. The males will fight to escort the baby and its mother back to their home.

Some people didn't know that they were killing whales everyday. They use their blubber for oil, which is a good fuel for oil lamps, great lubrication for instruments, and a fine base for creating cosmetics.

The whale family book was very informative, and kept me interested the entire time that I was reading the book. I would definitely recommend this book to all of my friends. I am sure that it would interest them the same way that it interested me. I believe that kids in at high school level should read this book.
