Book Review


Gerda lives with her family in the great big blue, but soon, she must go off to find her own special place. With her mother’s song in her heart, she sets off to explore. Gerda plays with some penguins she meets, but remembering her mother’s song, she heads off once again. Encountering all kinds of other animals, she can't find one place she fits until she is advised to go ask the wise narwhal of the North Pole. He tells her how to follow her heart, and she sets off, reconnecting with family and other whales to a place where she finally finds belonging.
