WellRead Kids June Selection: The Tale of the Whale by Karen Swann
In this month's kid's book, a whale invites a young child to go swimming. They embark on a magical journey of wonder and discovery from misty seaside shorelines to cold ice-capped seas. The whale, however, has something important to share – something that needs careful understanding and action. The book gently asks its reader if they can figure out what that message is.
Told in sweet rhyming verse and accompanied by the dreamiest of illustrations, this poetic tale of friendship and the beauty of the ocean, highlights the need to stop plastic pollution and change our future.
