Baby Beluga (Turtleback School & Library Binding Edition)by Ashley Wolff
Raffi's signature song and the top seller in his Songs to Read series, Baby Beluga is now available in a quality board book edition perfect for his youngest fans.
Children's Literature - Marilyn CourtotRaffi's song about a little white whale has been given the board book treatment. The illustrations show a baby white whale, but the proportions in relation to the other creatures are a bit strange given the immense size of whales. Even with the Inuit shown as a woman, the stereotype of them living in igloos persists.
School Library Journal - School Library JournalPreS-Gr 2-- The song about this small, white whale has as its hero probably the best loved of all Raffi's creations. Children who are learning about the interdependence of all life on Earth, and of the crucial importance of preserving the fragile environment, will get a first, cheerful lesson about the natural world by becoming acquainted with enchanting Baby Beluga, swimming wild and free with his mother in the deep blue sea. He and his friends are somewhat anthropomorphic, in the interests of cuddliness, but this does the message no harm . The illustrations are a joy to behold, and the song has a rhythm and rhyme that make it easy to remember and sing. --Joan McGrath, Education Centre Library, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
