Manatee Calves

From the Series Common Core K-2 Starter Set

In warm ocean water, a mother manatee gives birth to her single calf. So begins the life of a young manatee—one of the most unusual-looking marine mammals on Earth! In this coming-of-age introduction to these fascinating animals, readers will learn how a manatee calf drinks milk from its mother and learns to forage for ocean plants. Children will learn about every aspect of a baby manatee’s daily life and habitat, including the great day when the young manatee is ready to leave its mother and begin its adult life. The colorful interior spreads and gorgeous photos of manatee calves are sure to delight emergent readers. Manatee Calves is part of Bearport’s Water Babies series.
