“Dwell on the dreamy watercolors as Ida goes for a whale ride that takes her away from the world but at the same time allows her to really understand it. Reassuring text creates the perfect opportunity to ponder big questions together with a small child.”
— Jamie McCauley, R.J. Julia Booksellers, Madison, CT
