Infolink Book Evaluation Program, October 8, 2010

"Full of colorful illustrations and easy-to-read text, the book excels at packing in all sorts of fascinating information about belugas, including that belugas have dorsal ridges that enable them to break through the ice to swim freely, and that their young are born gray in color, with little protective blubber. This book and series would be a fine addition to any library. A list of fun facts, books, Web sites from which to learn more, and an index complement the plentiful information about beluga whales."

Children's Literature

". . . readers can gather a great deal of information about this lesser known whale."
