Read an Excerpt


F is for fish that glide through the cool ocean. Eagles, bears and orcas feast on delicious fish such as salmon, which is prized by many west coast animals.

G is for gray whales that swim a long way. Every spring, these gentle giants travel from the warm waters of Mexico to lush feeding grounds in the Arctic.

H is for huckleberries that brighten up the rainforest. Sweet red berries are a summer treat for bears and birds. They gobble up these forest fruits!

I is for invertebrates that live in the sand and sea. The ochre sea star is an invertebrate — an animal without a backbone.
