Saving the whale

by AnchorageSchools (WorldCat user published 2015-02-10) Good Permalink

A heartwarming story for first and second grade.  A baby whale washed up on the beach provides an opportunity for a boy to provide help and also to have an opportunity to do something together with his father.  Well illustrated.
