Many of you parents know of Raffi and one of his most famous songs, “Baby Beluga” (and if you don’t, Amazon has the mp3 for $0.99!) I fell in love with it the first time I heard it, and when I came across this beautiful board book, I jumped at the chance to learn the lyrics.
The book takes Raffi’s lyrics and sets them into a story illustrated by Ashley Wolff. Jackson just loves to point to the polar bears, and I was instantly won over by the narwals!
I started singing “Baby Beluga” to Jax whenever he was upset – especially during car rides. It helps him calm down every single time. I do have to keep singing it again and again if he is less than pleased about being in the car. The things we do for our little ones (and a sane drive home!)
This book is always the first book Jax picks up out of his bedroom book basket. A warning: Once you learn the song, you’ll find the book impossible to read… You’ll have to sing it!
