Join us on Facebook Live Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 10:00 am as Patsy Baldus reads “The Whale’s Song” written by Dyan Sheldon and beautifully illustrated by Gary Blythe.
In “The Whale’s Song,” Lilly’s grandmother shares a wonderful story with her about the magic of whales and the special gift they bring to someone who appreciates them. Uncle Frederick has a more practical view about whales and thinks Lilly’s Grandmother is talking nonsense. But Lilly believes she has just the right gift to give to the whales. Will the whales reward Lilly with a song?
As Ms. Baldus explains “Whales do come to the coast of Maine, and while this book showcases blue whales and humpbacks, we are more likely to see minke whales closer to our shores. ”
Kids will learn how to create a cardboard Seashore Wreath and how to write their very own whale song!
Children are encouraged to bring in their wreaths and original whale songs to be showcased in Mary’s room at the Library.
