Animals Illustrated: Ringed Seals
by William Flaherty, Sara Otterstatter (Illustrator )
This book contains interesting information about ringed seals, their habitat, their hunting, and their young pups. There are two to three paragraphs of information in each section, giving tidbits of information like how the seals have a layer of blubber fat that keeps them warm. Seals are intelligent and good at swimming away from predators like polar bears. They have strong claws on their front flippers for digging their way out of the ice. There is even a section about how Inuit tribes will use seal meat for food and make sealskin boots.
I love the warm artwork in this book! It really makes it enjoyable to read and see these wild animals illustrated in their wilderness home. It immediately captured my attention!
