and#147;Papa?and#8221;asked Little Blue.
and#147;Are we going very far?and#8221;
and#147;Yes, Little Blue. We will travel farther
than we have ever gone before.and#8221;
and#160;
As two whales swim together through the big ocean, Little Blue has many questions for Papa, especially ones about the long migration. How will they know the way? Will he be able to keep up? What will they see along the way?

Papa has answers for all these questions, but Little Blue remains curious as they begin their journey. What could be down below, where they canand#8217;t see? The answer is a magical world and Little Blue is enchanted . . . and#160;until there is only darkness surrounding the young whale. and#160;But if Little Blue is quiet and listens, can Little Blue hear Papaand#8217;s song?

Filled with the wonders of the ocean and the comfort of a fatherand#8217;s presence, Following Papaand#8217;s Song is a heartwarming story to be read again and again.

Review:

"In this reassuring and richly illustrated book about separation, a mother elephant tells her Little One that she must leave and 'climb the highest mountain to ask the skies for rain.' 'What if I can't hear you, Mama?' Little One asks. 'Listen for my sound on the wind,' she answers. 'But Mama, I won't be able to see you,' the small elephant says later. 'If we both look at the same star, it will be as if we are seeing each other,' she replies. Marino (One Too Many) crafts gorgeous, textured paintings suffused with the golden sunlight of the African plains — except, of course, at night, when a giant, milk-white moon hangs in the sky. The elephants' giant, wrinkled bodies dominate gentle scenes of mother-and-child affection; distant giraffes and zebras move to the foreground after Little One's mother leaves, lending comfort to the small elephant. When rain finally arrives but Mama doesn't return, Little One is bereft until he remembers to 'sing the calling song' that brings her back. Marino's breathtaking panoramas make an already powerful story sing. Ages 2 — 6. Agent: Deborah Warren, East/West Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.

Synopsis:

A heartwarming love story between mother and child

When Mama Elephant must leave Little One to ask the skies for rain, the young elephant is worried. Who will care for Little One? Who will sing Mama's special songs? When will she return?

Mama is very reassuring - Little One will hear her song on the wind and feel her love in the warmth of the sun, and, after the rains come, they will meet where the moon sets.

Exquisitely illustrated and supremely comforting, Meet Me at the Moon is a mother and child love story to be enjoyed again and again.
