    " There is a tender verse that appears on each page, complimented by the natural sea sponge paintings (also by Rylant). This book comes together very nicely as a look at the different whales of the world. "

    " My 5 year old enjoyed this. I expected it to be longer, but with pictures every other page, it was a very, very quick read. The pictures are really nice, though. Cute story. "

    " Very sweet story, even appealed to my rowdy 5yo boy. We'll be checking out more in this Lighthouse Family series. "

    " Cynthia Rylant was the author who we studied back in 2nd grade, and this was always my favorite of her books. I think it sowed the seeds for my love of whales. This is the ideal children's picture book, one that educates them and captures their imagination all the same time. "
