I just read a cute picture book by Kevin Scott Collier about a whale who is afraid to use his loud voice. I've seen other books by Collier and, like the others, Whispering Wally one has bright and cheerful illustrations and a plot with a positive message for young kids.
But what I like best about Whispering Wally is his own blog where you can watch him in a video of another story and download learning activities for kids. The URL is http://whisperingwally.blogspot.com/
Kevin Collier and his wife Kristen have a webpage where they show the many books and products they've created to encourage family values. They're currently offering some free giveaways on the site, http://tangerineskyproductions.com/
