Alfred is a little boy who is scared of lots of things, particularly talking in front of the class. The teacher gives him an assignment of finding out facts about the blue whale. The more Alfred learns, the more excited he gets and he finds himself able to give his presentation to the cladd.
This is an absolutely beautiful book, perfect for children who are shy and nervous like my daughter, but great for helping children overcome any fears they may have. My daughter loved reading about Alfred and it let us to having conversations about feeling the fear but doing it anyway!
My other daughter loved learning all about blue whales. She was fascinated by them and wanted to go to school and tell her friends all about them!
