Nov 06, Tracyesine rated it it was ok. This is the type of book I normally love, but it just isn't well written. The thrust, restated on most pages, seems to be that, while Adelina is poor, she is of normal intelligence and can see, hear, and smell things.
Most pictures are of the whales, while the text is mostly the type of faint praise of Adelina and her family I reference above.
It's a poor fit. Apr 10, Dana rated it really liked it Shelves: read-aloud. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I know where I want to spend next winter! With the whales in Baja California! Nov 10, Nicola Mansfield rated it really liked it. Sobol offers us another book filled with gorgeous photography of gray whales, up close and personal, as here on La Laguna the whales allow people to come right up to them and pet them.
We follow ten-year-old Adelina who lives in a grouping of box-like structures patched together with wood and metal on the beach. She adores her life here especially when in January the whales arrive from up north. We learn about Adelina's life and that of the whales through Adelina's family, her father and grandfather. A lovely story with tremendous photography to accompany it. Apr 27, Catherine rated it really liked it Shelves: have-in-classroom , middle-grades-picture-books , teaching , nonfiction.
