I am always amazed at how courageous, creative and imaginative children are. Where many adults don’t have the courage to step up and fulfill their dreams of writing a story, so many children have become published authors. My kids and I love to read books written by other kids their age!
“Whaley’s Big Adventure” tells the story of Whaley, a blue whale, and his adventure in the ocean where he meets other whales and fish of all different sizes.
The story is written by Alexander Luke, who is only 5 years old! It is presented by his grandmother, Carole P. Roman who is the author of the “Captain No Beard” books.
My kids loved “Whaley’s Big Adventure”. The illustrations are water colours done by Alexander Luke. My kids thought the pictures were great, and they inspired them to write and illustrate their own stories.
Every encounter the Whaley has with another sea creature will introduce your child to facts about that creature. Mr. Luke has taken the time to use references that kids will understand. My kids and easily imagine exactly how large “Gary the Gray Whale” is described as being the size of a bus!
The story lines focuses mostly on giving us facts about the sea life. My kids loved to talk about which new friend Whaley would take home for a play-date first. My kids had fun telling each other stories of the different games Whaley and his friends played together. That led to a discussion on being a good friend. My daughter commented that even though each new friend was different, Whaley is able to still be their friend. It just might take a little work finding a game to play with a friend who is as big as a school bus!
“Whaley’s Big Adventure” is a great story that will teach your child about ocean life and is sure to inspire your little one to write his/her own story!
