Ken Blanchard has teamed up with colleagues Sue Zlatin and Cathy Huett and illustrator Jane R. Griffith to create Whale Done, My Wonderful One!, a charming children's book that brings a powerful message of positive reinforcement to a whole new audience: children. The story of two orcas - a mother whale and her baby, Dale - is both a delightful read and a constructive model for positive child rearing. Children will be entertained and comforted by the mother/child relationship model, and parents will learn that accentuating the positive and redirecting the negative is more effective than deflating the spirits of their children with punishment.
Whale Done, My Wonderful One! is a fun story for kids that illustrates what the authors have found to be true: Effective parenting is not something you do to children; it's something you do with them.
Even when Dale gets himself in a scary situation, his mother is an understanding and caring parent. Readers of this book can be, too, when they build their kids' trust, praise them, and redirect their mistakes to keep them safe, bring out their best, and create a loving partnership.
Whether you are a parent, grandparent, relative, teacher, or friend, we invite you to use this book to grow with the children in your life and create caring, trusting relationships.

Little Dale is a young whale still new to the ocean, so there's a lot he doesn't know yet. Happily for Dale, he's learning about life in the sea from the best teacher of all: a mom who knows he's bound to make mistakes. She praises Dale when he does well, redirects him when he goofs, and loves him no matter what.
