Growing up in Alaska: A Baby Arctic Tern
A baby Arctic Tern hatches in Alaska. He has much to learn: how to eat, how to swim, how to bathe. But his greatest wish ... is to FLY!
This is the story of an Alaskan Arctic Tern as he grows up in Alaska's Potter Marsh near Anchorage. You follow him as he learns to eat, swim and care for his feathers. After many days of practice, trial and failure, he gains the joy of flying with his parents.
The text, photographs and illustrations explain his experiences. Children see how he keeps on trying when practicing new skills. Perfect for reading to younger children and for older children to read to themselves.
A story of learning, growing and spreading your wings.
