This evocative picture book celebrates a child's connection and kinship with whales, and will appeal to fans of If You Want to See a Whale by Julie Fogliano and Erin Stead
Swimming, singing, and blowing bubbles — children and baby whales love many of the same things! This lyrical picture book compares the parent-child relationship with the bond between a mother humpback whale and her calf, showing how their underwater lives are touchingly like our own. Patterned in a call-and-response format, where the mother observes and the child responds, this book is peppered with facts and begs to be read aloud before bedtime. At the story's end, acclaimed author Beryl Young and debut illustrator Sakika Kikuchi leave readers gently falling asleep, dreaming of the wonderful world we share with whales.
