To the Sea

To the Sea I have a new favorite picture book friendship I adored Tim Sam and their story of finding a friend when they previously felt invisible The color palette is striking and the illustrations are fabulously endearing Loved this one To the Sea by Cale Atkinson Beautiful little friendship story Very cute Appreciated the friendship and the characters who appreciated not feeling invisible to everyone Good book for discussing loneliness This book had the best best best book trailer I ve seen for the longest time. Being invisible Explicit theme. Piya Gofy got me this book Sam is a big blue whale and he says I see you The boy is me And I meet Gofy He s a googoogaga Gofs playing on the sand. When Tim encounters a stranded blue whale named Sam on his way home from school one day, the young boy befriends the lost cetacean, promising to help him return to the sea His initial ideas driving, flying, etc prove less than effective, but then he hits upon the solution he will use his bicycle to tow Sam down to the shore When Tim s efforts leave him stranded in the sea, just as Sam was stranded on land, will his new friend return the favor A sweet little tale of the friendship between boy and whale, Cale Atkinson s To the Sea put me in mind of Mac Barnett and Adam Rex s Billy Twitters and His Blue Whale Problem , a humorous picture book about a young boy who gets a blue whale for a pet Although done in a very different illustrative style, Atkinson s story had visual as well as narrative similarities to the Barnett Rex production, which featured a boy on a bicycle towing a blue whale on its front cover, just as To the Sea did on its rear cover Perhaps Atkinson was influenced by that earlier tale Whatever the case may be, this is a gentle, engaging tale of friendship made and reciprocated, one sure to appeal to young children who dream of whales, or just of making a friend that feels as much of a fish out of water as they do. So adorable Lovely illustration A cute story about finding a friend.
