Water marvel

Ma! Is that a fish?
No, it is a whale. It does not lay eggs like a fish, but gives birth to young ones and suckles them. It breathes through the lungs. It comes to the surface of water to gulp oxygen. Its air chambers are like rooms of our house.
Is it the biggest water mammal?
No, the biggest water mammal is the Blue Whale. It is about 100 feet long and weighs 150 tonnes. It can devour two to three tonnes of food for a meal.
Ma! Look at that funny fish playing with a ball.
It is a Dolphin. By nature it is a soft playful creature.
The next moment, my mother was asking me get ready for school. Oh! That was a marvellous dream.
Dream! What do you mean?
Yes Ma, I saw the whale, Blue Whale and Dolphin in my dream.
