Publisher Comments:

In the Pacific Northwest, concerned volunteers become seal sitters, keeping vigil over the vulnerable baby seals that are left on the shore while their mothers hunt for food. Surviving in the animal kingdom is never easy and this informative picture book gives a first-hand look at what baby seals are up against. With its emphasis on human compassion, this true account teaches children to appreciate the natural world by helping in any way they can.  The star of the book is six year old Miles, who organizes his own rescue mission to help the seals survive.

Synopsis:

Babysit a baby seal!

Baby seals can swim soon after they are born, but they also need to rest on shore. How can they stay safe if the beach is full of dogs and people? This adaptation of the picture book Leopard & Silkie is just right for new readers who love animals.
