Large illustrations of the main character in this book, acute  baby Beluga whale, will captivate preschoolers as they learn more about this special creature.

For example, the reader will discover that the young whale is five feet long and dark gray. But, with age, the baby Beluga will turn white like its mother.

Living in the Arctic Ocean, the whale can chirp like a bird and moo like a cow. Its diet includes shrimp, squid, clams, crabs and small fish. The only natural predators the Beluga must fear besides man are orca whales and polar bears.

Filled with all sorts of interesting tidbits about this unusual creature, this nicely designed picture book will become a bedtime favorite with youngsters fascinated about the creatures of the deep.
