Come along with a mother whale and her baby on the path of the gray whale migration. From Jo Weaver, award-winning author-illustrator of Little One.

"The simple, comforting text and the graceful illustrations keep perfect time, lending a quiet satisfaction to a story perfect for bed/laptime.... A soft introduction to gray whales and animal migrations." --School Library Journal

Together, Little Whale and Gray Whale swim under midnight skies and through coral reefs teeming with life as they migrate to the cool, rich waters of the north to feed. Gray Whale gently guides her baby along the way, keeping Little Whale safe from passing ships and dangerous predators. And at long last, the echo of a whale song calls to them through icy water, and they know...they are home.

With gentle text and stunning monochromatic illustrations, award-winning author-illustrator Jo Weaver reveals the wonder of nature, the excitement of discovery, the pull of home, and the strength of parental love. Ideal for storytime or bedtime, the book is also a wonderful complement to early childhood and elementary nature, animal, and ocean studies.
