Take a deep breath and dive into a day in the life of a baby whale, told with luminous illustrations and spare text, with a fresh twist on a timeless message.

Swim! Play all day. Breathe.

After a day of independence, this little whale delights in returning home to his mother. Young readers will be drawn to Scott Magoon’s reassuring story of adventure.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Calm, bedtime book My son loved this book. I bought it when he was 3, he's now at summer camp and at 6 years old brought it for show and share. It is a short, calm, serene perfect-for-bedtime book. It taught my son alot on how to just be calm and think things through. A much loved book in our house, to this day.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very nice Beautiful illustrations. Very simple narrative. Maybe too simple. Doesn't make for a super interesting story. Might be good as a first reader though.
