Photographic storybook - a baby Arctic tern who hatches and grows up in Alaska.

One spring day a pair of Arctic terns landed after their long flight north from Antarctica. They built a nest and laid an egg. Soon, a downy baby arctic tern hatched.

Learning, growing, and stretching your wings

The baby tern had so much to learn: how to eat, how to swim and how to care for his feathers. But his greatest wish was to fly. After many days of practice, trial and failure, he stretched his wings and before he knew it he was flying high in the sky!
