621: Julie Fogliano: If You Want to See a Whale

This beautiful, tender book advises the reader about what to do, and not do, in order to successfully spot a whale, such as wrapping up in a not-too-cozy blanket, ignoring the roses, and especially, being patient.

“if you want to see a whale / you will need a window / and an ocean / and time for waiting / and time for looking”
