Theme: Learning about whales enables us to help them survive in our environment.


Based on the journey of a California humpback whale, this book follows the journey of “wrong-way” Humphrey as he finds his way back to the sea with the help of some friends.

A whale-watching day at sea with a naturalist helps LeVar understand the whales’ natural environment, and practices that have threatened whales. Viewers also find out about three young pilot whales who were rescued, nursed back to health and re-released, and they see news clips of “wrong way” Humphrey’s mis-adventure.
