You're here!  You've been born!  You have arrived in this wonderful place called Planet Earth.  Welcome little whale... little beluga whale...who is about to surface to take in the sky for the very first time.  

What a journey lies ahead.  What exploring awaits. What "first steps" this little whale is about to take.  Using the softest and calmest and most reassuring of blues, this soothing adventure is awash in a mother's hug and protection.  It is gloriously safe to go forth and explore.  You can dive deep to the bottom of the ocean, make new friends, and surface in the icy world of the Arctic surrounded by strong, centuries old mountains who have seen a whale or two before.

Don't be afraid.  Not even for a moment.  Swim strong and wide and as you go forward surrounded by ocean and by the love of your whale family, take  moment after moment to breathe in and love where you are, who you are and what the future holds for you.

This would be wonderful for a unit on the environment, on feelings, on exploration, on the Arctic, on whales and for the most important things...inspiration and gratitude.
