These are memes started by Teach Mentor Texts and Book Journey, and I'm excited to participate, along with many other bloggers, in reviewing books I read the previous week. I'll be reviewing picture books through adult books.
I loved the striking illustrations in this book about a baby Beluga's journey, and the message from his mother to enjoy life and all its wonders. I smiled all the way through it. It would make a great, calming bedtime book for a child.
