Rated 5 out of 5 by from My kids love it My daughter fell in love with the book from the start because it's beautiful. She's a big fan of sea creatures so the illustrations had her lapping up the book. My son loves the story because of the song. I bought the song when my daughter fell in love with the story so by the time my son was born, the song was a family staple. He didn't love reading before he turned 18 months but he loved this book because of the song. So in a way, I think the song helped develop his interest in books.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lots of fun The artwork in this book is amazing. If you have a copy of the song "Baby Beluga" by Raffi, you'll get hours of fun singing the song while turning pages. My 2 1/2 year old loves it! She knows the names of all the creatures who live in the arctic with baby beluga.

From Our Editors

Raffi's most beloved song--about a little white whale on the go--is a charming lullaby, a lyrical tribute to an endangered creature, and "an inviting approach to reading encouragement".--Booklist

Editorial Reviews

"The song about this small white whale has as its hero the best loved of Raffi's creations. Children will get a first, cheerful lesson about the natural world by becoming acquainted with enchanting Baby Beluga. The illustrations are a joy, and the song's rhythm and rhyme make it easy to remember and sing."--School Library Journal
