What Wee Read
If You Want to See a Whale by Julie Fogliano and Erin Stead
This sweet and uplifting story reads like poetry. A boy and his basset hound wait patiently to see a whale. And in doing so, they see lots of other things.
It's not fast-moving or funny or silly or surprising. It's what we call a "quiet book" – with a lyrical narrative and soft illustrations – perfect for winding down at bedtime and for encouraging sweet dreams.
