Thoughtful Thursday

Breathe by Scott Magoon is a beautifully rendered and written book.  A young white whale swims through its day with a frolic.  Enjoying all parts of life as we follow along, we see the attraction to the deep to explore and surfacing with our faces turned toward the sun.  
The illustrations were done digitally and show a fine hand for the texture of icebergs, layering of colors as we dive deep, and carefully find a sunken ship.
I'll use this book in Storytime with Preschoolers as well as Kindergarten to First grade.  I'll recommend it to parents for before bedtime reading.
