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.

Praise for Leopard & Silkie:
“Use this book to show a program in which children are actively involved and to encourage volunteerism.” —School Library Journal
“Lindsey’s excellent photographs show why humans can’t stay away: Leopard’s large, dark eyes and expressive mug seem to be smiling right at the viewer, and his furry, floppy body just calls out for a hug.” —Horn Book Magazine
“Although photos of the adorable seal pups steal this nicely designed picture book, kids will likely find Miles—someone who is much like them—to be inspiring, and his efforts may spark an interest in animal rights.” —Booklist
