Take a trip to the Arctic with Baby Beluga.
Pre-readers and beginning readers meet the adorable and playful baby beluga whale. The questions that kids will have for the baby beluga are answered simply and clearly by the baby whale himself. Young learners discover that baby belugas stay close to their mothers and live in large pods, they eat shrimp and fish and other sea creatures, and they can make many sounds like chirps, moos, whistles, and more.
HELLO, BABY BELUGA is perfect for reading aloud at story hour and bed time.
Patricia Wynne illustrates baby beluga’s icy blue north Atlantic home and lets children get up close to these fascinating and friendly creatures.
This book is fine, but the “Baby Beluga, [insert question here]?” format is extraordinarily repetitive and became grating.
