This short book is a fascinating and heart-warming ride along with swimmer Lynne Cox, when she crosses paths with a baby gray whale and takes on the task of helping him locate his mothers. For animal lovers of all stripes - this book reminds us that we are "all in it together".

A quick read. Good book with a much bigger message than a brave girl who swims with a whale. Lots of positive messages and life lessons for all of us. Whales are part of NYS 5th grade curriculum, and this book would be a GREAT addition to that unit. Great book to read along with your kids. They will learn a lot about aquatic life and human life.
