"In the Pacific Northwest, concerned volunteers become seal sitters, keeping vigil over the vulnerable baby seals that are left on the shore while their mothers hunt for food. Surviving in the animal kingdom is never easy and this informative picture book gives a first-hand look at what baby seals are up against.
