Ida and the Whale

Ida and the Whale by Rebecca Gugger is a beautifully illustrated picture book about a child’s dream. The soft colors with just the right amount of pop added to them captivated the children and were quite stunning.

The story itself Ida and the Whale were not as captivating as we hoped. Ida and the Whale has a wonderful premise, but unfortunately, the execution was not great. The story itself left us wanting more, but not in a good way. The plot was not as developed as I wanted, which left the children with a lot of questions.
