it was amazing

Whale Talk is a great controversial book! It made me cringe in a couple of parts. I think this book should be read by anyone who aspires to work with children. The reason I say this is because if you are unsure how you feel about the types of controversial books out there, this is definitely a good way to gain a perspective on both the pros and cons of having books with such heated topics. Personally, I feel that even though this book is absolutely disgusting at times, it is real, and it is true. I do not believe in covering up the problems of the world by banning books. This book may be crude to some, but it could be a reality and a relief that another child may be able to relate to.
