"Simple prose will appeal to preschoolers, who will identify with Oscar's insecurity without his mother. Young children will also relate to those first forays without a parent and the comfort of being reunited. Older readers will be interested in the back matter, which includes a description of the real-life event, information about humpback whales, and a diagram of the whale. The illustrations are digitally created and add a lot of expression to Oscar--readers can see all of his worries and his eventual happiness when ultimately everything turns out just fine. VERDICT: A tale of environmental awareness for preschoolers."
--School Library Journal

"This delightful read takes you on a magical journey to explore the majestic humpback whale that lives in the depths of the ocean. This could be a wonderful unit study to explore the humpback whale for those in pre-kindergarten to upper elementary. This book also provides numerous discussion starters, such as life of a whale, taking care of our oceans, a human's vital role in caring for the planet, an emergency plan if you find an animal in trouble and knowing who to call for help. Another way to incorporate this book into your homeschool is using the information as inspired creativity to create works of art, painting with different materials to re-tell the story of Oscar and his journey of being caught in a fishing net, rescued by humans, and then set free again. What a powerful story your students could tell using their imagination and some color. This book created an awareness for my kids that is hard to describe unless you show them through an inspired story, like Little Whale in Deep Trouble. For those "outside of the box" thinkers, there are several ways for this book to help you explore the endless possibilities of creativity. Be inspired along the journey!"
