Describes the daily life of Kotik, a baby seal, as it grows and develops

Blackwell North Amer
Somewhere out on the ice pack, in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence, a little harp seal first opens his eyes on a cold, bright February morning. Based on scientific observations made out on the ice fields, Kotik - the Baby Seal tells a true story: the first weeks of life of a "whitecoat", his birth on the ice field, his mother's comforting presence, his stunning growth, his bewilderment when he finds himself left to his own resources and his first big trip all by himself.
Angele Delaunois has written several books for young readers on the fauna of North America and the Arctic. In Kotik - the Baby Seal she tells a touching and unusual story in which poetry and science go hand in hand.
