Breathe by Scott Magoon
|Delivery time:||4-6 days|
Today you've done some amazing things. And seen some pretty awesome sights. But did you revel in those moments? Or maybe you had a close call—did you take a moment to shake it off?
Our baby beluga whale does. Follow his voyage as he explores his arctic home with mom and his friends. I hope you find that Breathe is a perfect quiet day's journey into night to share with your little ones at bedtime.
"Breathe by Scott Magoon is absolutely lovely and I would love Magoon to get an award one of these days." —Elizabeth Bird, School Library Journal Newbery / Caldecott 2015: The Summer Prediction Edition
"An absolutely perfect way to slow down and get ready for sleep." —The Globe and Mail (Canada)
"This comforting tale not only gives youngsters the opportunity to explore the ocean alongside a whale but also subtly reminds them of the importance of slowing down to take a break every once in a while. Magoon’s illustrations, which were rendered digitally, are vibrant and expansive, each filling a spread with vivid shades of blue. The minimal text is laid out in clear, big font, supporting the impressive illustrations without ever overshadowing them. With its succinct text and sprawling pictures, this story is perfectly suitable as a read-aloud. –Laura J. Giunta, Garden City Public Library, NY" —School Library Journal
