Intern. Wildlife Rehab Council
(August 2012):

"This is not a book for one reading! Like any rich tapestry or quilt, this piece provides numerous places for the eye and brain to contemplate. A dizzying array of plants, animals and habitats accompany the short but intense text on each page. The combination lets children slowly absorb ecological concepts and vocabulary while exploring the depths of each page. While the younger readers might grasp only one or two vocabulary words and mostly enjoy the photos, as they grow they will increase their grasp of the vocabulary. Rated for children 4-10 I can see this book in use for the entire six year period."

Susan Heim, Chicken Soup for the Soul Editor
(August 2012):

". . . I love how each page also introduces an important vocabulary word or phrase, such as interdependence, niche, and food chain. The colorful photos and diversity of creatures portrayed will have children leafing through these pages again and again."

Susan Heim, Vegbooks
(October 2012):

". . . I especially liked how children can see their place in the world and the inclusion of a two pages featuring environmentalists show children and adults alike that they can make a difference. In the teaching tips at the end of the book there are ideas for preschoolers and older children to further explore how they too can care for "our Earth.""

Retailing Insight
(September 2012):

"Dr. Hodson has carefully observed orca behavior for years and she tells their tale with great insight and love. Her words make the family come to life, and Ann Jones renders the bold, black and white giants’ movements against colorful backgrounds. The illustrations invite the reader to swim along with the clan from page to page. . . . It’s a great gift item for young and old alike."

Intern. Wildlife Rehab Council
(August 2012):

"Heart warming! The author cleverly uses the family structure that humans and orcas share to craft her story. The result is an approachable story that will instantly tie children to the lives of the orcas of the Salish seas."

Susan Heim, Chicken Soup for the Soul Editor
(September 2012):

". . . This is a beautifully written and illustrated book about a very special orca family that will delight and educate children and their families."
