A Seal Named Patches, Hardback Book


Two polar explorers are out to solve a mystery: Where is their special seal, Patches?

Scientists Roxanne Beltran and Patrick Robinson set off on a polar adventure, traveling to Antarctica to study the lives of Weddell seals.

By finding Patches, a wily seal they've been tracking since its birth, they'll be able to learn a lot about how much the seals get to eat and how many pups they raise.

A Seal Named Patches takes young readers into the world at the very bottom of the globe, where they meet the extraordinary animals that live in cold, icy conditions.

Through breathtaking photos and real-life stories, young readers will learn about how scientists do fieldwork, the challenges of researching animals in harsh climates, and even what it's like to fly a helicopter over Antarctica.

This engaging story will especially entertain and educate children ages 5-8.
