So far "Baby Beluga" has the highest words-to-adorable-swaying-baby ratio of all our books (but not all the toys: that honour goes to "Jazzy Sax"). ( )

Baby Beluga is a classic, and I enjoyed it even as a child. The main idea about the book is an informative book about the Beluga whale and it's surroundings. The most enjoyable element of the book is the smooth word flow, which is impacted by the enclusion of a melody to the structure of the book so the book can be either read aloud or sang along. The illustrations are full of soft pastel colors and soft shapes, creating a comforting atmosphere for a book about a baby animal. ( )

I really enjoyed reading this book because of the writing that contains a repetition of certain phrases and the colorful illustrations. First, I liked how the book has a sing-songy nature in its writing because certain phrases repeat. For instance, the phrase "Baby beluga in the deep blue sea, / Swim so wild and you swim so free" appears repeatedly throughout the story, and the readers can continue visualizing the baby whale swimming happily in the ocean. The illustrations were also pleasant and colorful to look at, especially the pages that show the family of belugas, penguins, and other sea creatures as well as an eskimo girl in an igloo that sleep peacefully together under the beautiful moonlight. The central message of this book seems to be that having a close, loving relationship with family members and friends bring true delight. ( )
