    This is a sweet adventure of a little boy with a big imagination… so big he thinks his fish is a baby whale. The idea made my son and daughter’s eyes light up! I particularly like how this book touches on the history of whaling so parents can choose to discuss it with their kids, but since American whaleboats are only used for fishing and racing now, the author instead focuses on teaching young readers about how they can help keep the ocean clean and safe for whales (and Betta fish ;). It’s a beautifully illustrated book that balances whimsy and education perfectly! And the “Hero of the Ocean To-Do List” at the end is a great bonus! I recommend this book along with the first two books of the series.

    This is a fun, intelligent & cute story about a boy & his pet fish. As with the other books in this series, the illustrations are charming and the author imparts a lesson (environmental awareness for this book) and gets her point across with a great sense of humor. At the end of the book is a page for a child to list ways they can help the environment.

    What a cute story. Can’t wait to read it to the kids. I love the ocean and all it’s wildlife, so I like the message that teaches a love of the ocean and whales … future advocates for taking better care of such an important resource.

    A bright adventure full of imagination. The illustrations are lovely, and themes of outdoor, unstructured play and love for nature are very welcome.

    This book was fantastic! My nephew and I read this book together. Initially, we wanted to read it because it was about whales. What we didn’t know is that it would prepare my nephew to have his first fish. When we get his new fish, that he also wants to name Blue, Corbin wants to protect and take care of his under the water friend. He wants to put the fish on a schedule so he does not get overfed and big in his belly. Corbin also couldn’t wait to tell all his friends about how we can protect our oceans and sealife.

    This book touches on such a critical and important topic, while keeping it kid-friendly. The illustrations are beautiful and the colors are nautical, fitting the theme. The checklist at the end made the book interactive too. I highly recommend!

    Elliot and the Whale tale captures the mindset of a young child. Every child will identify with the ways Elliot thinks and reasons. The story has a sweet innocence. The artwork is friendly and inviting. The concern for the environment and wildlife will become dear to the child who is captivated by the tale. To anchor the story, there should be much discussion about this book and it ought to be referred to randomly as news about climate change and the effects on wildlife are reported in the news. Well done!
