Our Children's Specialists love... IF YOU WANT TO SEE A WHALE!
Whales are tricky beasts. To see them, you must not be too distracted by roses, or pelicans, or the oceanwaves breaking along the shore. If you are patient and wait long enough, you might just spot one! This is a lovely book with plenty to look at and dream about, courtesy of Erin Stead's signature pencil/woodblock style. --reviewed by Elizabeth of Books Inc. in the Marina
This charming little picture book was enjoyable to read. In a simple, poetic style, Julie Fogliano offers instruction on what to pay attention to, and what not to pay attention to, if you want to catch a glimpse of a whale. The illustrations by Erin Stead capture the essence of this simple story beautifully. --reviewed by Amy of Books Inc. in Burlingame
