What is it with those Whales?

Have you heard the breaking news that a mother whale and her calf swam up the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta?!

Well, we have a very special book about a very special whale -- Humphrey -- who did just that, way back in 1984! The remarkable tale, Humphrey the Lost Whale, first published in 1986, was a Reading Rainbow feature book and has been delighting readers old and young for years. There are nearly 500,000 copies in print!

Wendy Tokuda, co-author of Humphrey the Lost Whale, is a well-known Bay Area news anchor, especially visible in the community for her inspirational "Students Rising Above" series.
