Read to a group of 5-7 year old children, they enjoyed the sense of adventure, the bright pictures and learning about a new and different place and culture.
I was glad that there was an explanation in the beginning about names and places, this helped me as well as the kids. This is a good story to read for environmental extension activities, especially if you have some labradorite mineral samples to let the kids see. All of the animal companions were fun; however I was disappointed that one of them was a penguin since penguins are only present in the southern hemisphere. Although, There was good information about humpback whales. There were great resources at the end of the story for teachers as well as a quiz.
