Orca Calves

From the Series Water Babies

Under the ocean, a mother orca gives birth to her calf and then gently pushes the baby to the water’s surface so it can take its first breath of air. So begins the life of a little orca calf. In this coming-of-age introduction to these marine mammals, readers will see how an orca calf feeds, swims, and spends its days surrounded by the protection of its family pod. Children will discover that, unlike many young animals, most orcas do not leave their mothers as they approach adulthood, but will stay with their family for their entire lives. The colorful interior spreads and gorgeous photos of orca calves are sure to delight emergent readers. Orca Calves is part of Bearport’s Water Babies series.
