“Go my little one, swim free,” she whispered.
“I'll always be waiting here . . .

When a tiny whale calf is born, his mother raises him to the surface to take his first breath. She guides him as he grows, until he is strong enough to swim at her side, and they set off together on a great journey across the oceans.

One day, the time will come for the grown calf to set out on his own . . . but wherever he goes and whatever he does, his mother will be waiting for him and sending her song of love across the oceans.

Filled with beautiful, luminous artwork, this stunning picture book tells a universal story about love and family that's perfect for readers young and old.
