My son’s nursery school teacher recommended I check out William Steig’s endearing tale of Amos & Boris. She knew my son would like it, given his long-lasting obsession with whales and other sea creatures.
Amos is a tiny mouse who winds up alone in the ocean, and Boris is an enormous whale who comes to his rescue. The story is about the bond between the two very different mammals.
Not only does my son love it, but it has become a cherished favorite in our house. A classic tale of friendship and love. (See a few sample pages here.)
