Based on true events in 2009, Dolphin SOS recounts the story of three dolphins trapped in an ice-covered cove on the coast of Newfoundland. Winner of the 2015 Christie Harris Illustrated Children's Literature Prize. Cree/Métis artist Julie Flett combines with the authors to create an outstanding picture book about assisting wildlife from a young child's perspective.
A wonderful, whimsical exploration of various animals in the water and the ways in which children can, and do, mimic them, Whoosh! gets young readers thinking and moving. Each spread features an animal in a watery scene opposite a child mimicking the animal's activity in some way. From splashing like a dolphin to fishing like a heron, from snoozing like an alligator to hiding like a clownfish, the echoing images bring to life the real ways that animals behave — and reveal how there's a little bit of animal in all of us.
