      Accompanied by his father, Little Blue Whale begins his first migration to the summer feeding ground Filled with questions and wonder about the journey, Little Blue Whale swims off course and must use his whale song to find his father again With gorgeous illustrations, this is a reassuring story about the parent child bond set deep underwater.

      Great book to teach what to do when you get lost I had a daughter who thought it was funny to run away This would have been a fantastic book to read and use as a lesson instead of just instruction on why we are not suppose to run away You could also use this book about migration patterns of whales The illustrations in this book are beautiful, the way the colors roll together One of the best illustrated books I have seen.

      We grabbed this at the library mostly because the front cover has a lot of green and Gwen has been liking green a lot lately She seemed to love this book and I don t 100% know why Why does a six month old like anything The colors are vibrant and beautiful, and it uses Papa instead of Daddy like Gwen does , so that may be why I also liked it In the story, the young whale gets momentarily lost, but only for about a page so it s not tense or upsetting The story is a bit of a nonentity in comparison [...]

      This month s installment of Dolly Parton s Imagination Library was this beautiful book I d never heard of Little Blue is following his blue whale father on his very first migration when he gets distracted and swims off but all he has to do is listen for his papa s song to get back with the pod the illustrations were gorgeous especially the bright lovely colors childern for the backgrounds We had added fun since Benji already had a stuffed blue whale now rechristened Little Blue acting out the pa [...]

      This book reminds me a lot of Gianna Marino s other book in the same vein Meet Me at the Moon except with a dad Like that one, it fits into the the kissing hand type of genre My kids didn t care too much for this one either I m super pragmatic and the my love for you will echo in eternity and call you back to me vibe just isn t my style It s all a bit too new age, hippy, earth mama to me If that s your bag, give it a go.

      Personal Reaction This is a picture book that would be a good read aloud for a Kindergarten through first grade book The book is simple yet provides beautiful illustrations of the different layers of the ocean This book is about a young whale, Little Blue, who is migrating a far distance with its father Little Blue learns that it must always listen for the whales song for guidance Soon Little Blue becomes curious about what lies in deep in the ocean He discovers life then darkness as he continue [...]

      This was like the aquatic version of Are we there yet featuring whales The story is really sweet and it pulls the heart strings The little whale calf is anxious to get to their destination While the father whale is patient and gently guides him to the final destination a some adventure for the little calf happens There is a moment when the calf gets lost and he must find his way out of the darkness Instead of being frantic, he calmly listens for Papa s Song Through the darkness he is able to hea [...]

      Little Blue Whale is getting ready to travel with Papa Whale and the rest of the pod on their long swim to their spring feeding grounds As their journey starts, Little Blue becomes temporarily separated from the other whales while he checks out all the wonders of the deep ocean, but the song of Papa and the other whales guides him back to safety.There are some very pretty background colors and nice renderings of whales in the artwork, but I found the narration a little dull and predictable Still [...]

      Gianna Marino has also written Too Tall Houses and Meet Me At The Moon This recently published book was loaned to me by my great book buddy, and it is another treasure With beautiful illustrations in different shades depending on the ocean depth, a whale baby learns about the ocean and what he can see if he dives deep, but also that he ll always hear his papa if he listens, and thus be able to find him It s a sweet book for young children, but I also take it as a metaphor for all of us who still [...]

      I thought this tale of a father whale and a baby whale getting ready to migrate to another feeding area was really nice The illustrations are soft and colorful and the baby whale has a lot of questions about where they were going and how they would know how to get there Baby whale is afraid he will get lost and Papa whale explains he has to always listen for his song So when Baby whale explores just a little further away and things look unfamiliar he starts to panic a little and then he remember [...]

      Every child will identify with Little Blue in this story Who hasn t wandered off from a parent and felt that awful panicky feeling usually on the heels of some great wondrous thing because the wandering had to do with the discovery of something interesting so the contrast is extreme Gentle teaching about whales and listening to one s parents is woven throughout this tale that is as beautiful as the sea itself.

      A father blue whale and his young son head towards their summer feeding ground for the young one s first time Like many youngsters, this little whale is curious and ventures off to see the magical and dark places in the sea that papa has told him about Getting scared, Little Blue listens and remembers that the can follow Papa s song to find him.A sweet book for young explorers and nature lovers.

    23. Beverly on said:

      I really loved the gouache and gum arabic illustrations in this lovely book the changing colors of the ocean, the extreme close ups of the whales, and especially the excellent silhouette of the whales The textured watercolor paper upon which the illustrations are painted make for very interesting backgrounds The story is very sweet and heart warming, but not very original However, the illustrations do a masterful job of capturing all the action and the emotions of the whale characters.
