review 1: Chris Raschka is known for his ability to get to the essence of things with minimal words and deceptively simple illustrations. He's hit the mark again in this new series that, frankly, should be board books. They're perfectly aimed at babies and toddlers who will want to read them again and again, and even these sturdy paper pages won't stand up to enthusiastic use. Where is Whaley Whale? Is she on the table? In the basket? Behind the door? Youngsters get a nice introduction to prepositions as they giggle with the knowledge that Whaley is under the chair. Swoopy illustrations, and the chortle-worthy concept of a whale hiding in the house make this a winner for the intended audience, who have been known to play the hiding game themselves.
review 2: Whaley Whale
... more's hiding and it's up to you to find her! This is one of my favorites in this series. I like the places the reader is encouraged to explore and there are many opportunities for audience participation with this story as listeners are provided with many chances to yell out "no" and finally "yes" when Wahley Whale is found. So cute, very simple (fun illustration paired with simple text), great for sharing with the toddler crowd. Love this series of books, they crack me up! less

Good for teaching positional words. I also like the pattern of endings in this series.
I love these easy to read mini-books! Great for beginner readers!
So Silly. Might be good for littles for storytime?
ADORBS. Too small for most storytimes though.
