Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Ages 5^-8. Beginning with the January birth of Little Gray in the waters off Baja California, this picture book traces the 6000-mile journey to the Arctic that the gray whales make in the spring. Threatened along the way by a boat and an attack by orcas, Little Gray, his mother, Old Gray, and their friend Three Scars travel up the coast and through the Bering Straits into the Chukchi Sea, their summer home. Starting with the little whale's birth is an effective device for the storyteller because of its inherent drama as well as the introduction of a character who is learning whale ways along with the listening children. French's text keeps the story moving, offering information and action to capture children's attention without sentimentalizing or humanizing the whales. Flather's illustrations include small black linocut prints as well as larger painted linocut pictures of the whales in their element. A nice addition to whale units in the classroom. Carolyn Phelan

By A Customer on January 4, 2001
Format: Hardcover
The book is nicely written. However some of the sentences are a little long for some young readers. You may also find one or two words that require some explaining to the younger readers. The context is educational and the book has a calming effect on my children. It is a very nice book to add to a home or class room library.
