Me and the Whale

Daniella Carmi
AGE: 3-7

An ordinary family holiday by the sea turns into a real adventure, when a huge, black mountain washes up onto the shore - and turns out to be a whale. Grown-ups and children join forces to help get the whale back into the water: they run, fill buckets of water, push, pour them and get very excited. When the whale finally goes back out to the sea, they cheer and watch him as he turns into a huge black bird, and disappears in the distance.
Daniella Carmi turns the everyday into a fantastic adventure and a unique rescue mission.
