Friday Favorites

The Whale in My Swimming Pool by Joyce Wan is delightful!  When going out to swim one day, in his pool, a boy runs into trouble, a whale of a problem.  There's a whale in his tiny pool. Nothing gets the whale out.  But with a little ingenuity the boy figures it out.  You'll love the ending, I did!
The art is done digitally in Illustrator.  It is bright and inviting.  The story and art go well together and the story has just enough humor to draw in both children and adults, which is not easy to do.
I look forward to seeing more from Joyce!  I'll use this title with children from Preschool age to 2nd grade.
