A lushly illustrated father-child book to share at bedtime - or to reassure kids who may have separation anxiety. It is also a very spiritual exploration of the sea and natural world.

Little Blue the humpback whale has a million questions for his Papa about their first migration together. What will they see? How will they know where to go? And -- scariest of all -- what will happen if Little Blue gets lost? Papa reassures Little Blue that all he needs to do is listen for Papa's song, and he'll never lose his way. Vibrant washes of aquatic colors illuminate the mixed-media illustrations, which depict not only the vast depths of the ocean, but also the fathomless love between father and child. For another comforting parent-child whale tale, check out Breathe by Scott Magoon.
