A King Salmon Journey


Two thousand miles is a staggering distance for any kind of journey. But imagine making it not by car or even foot—but by fin. That’s what faces Chinook, a female king salmon, as she takes a dramatic trip to safely deliver her eggs. From the Bering Sea, up the Yukon River, and on to the Nisutlin River, A King Salmon Journey takes young readers on an engaging ride through the waters of Alaska and Canada, bringing to life the biology—and mystery—of one of the world’s most popular fish. Based on the story of a real-life Chinook, this beautifully illustrated book deftly combines science with a fast-paced tale of survival and perseverance.

Sebaby by Ellen Levine Seababy, A Little Otter Returns Home
Hardcover

After a baby otter is separated from his mother during a storm, he washes up on shore alone and exhausted. A human rescues him and takes him to an aquarium where he’s taught how to survive in the wild—lessons his own mother would have taught if they hadn’t been separated. Seababy learns important tasks like diving, swimming, and eating, and before long he is well prepared to return home to the sea.

Based on an actual program run by Monterey Bay Aquarium, Ellen Levine’s research with the scientists working with the baby otters lends this heartfelt tale authenticity, and Jon Van Zyle’s signature style captures the cute factor of these adorable babies, making this book a must have for animal lovers and science fans alike.

raven River Raven and River
Softcover

Age Level: 4 and up
Raven and River leads young readers on a fantastical journey with a raven across the icy Alaska landscape on the verge of spring. Along the way, the raven’s sonorous cry wakes a cast of sleeping woodland creatures, including a bear, a beaver, a hare, and a squirrel—all of whom join him in imploring the still-frozen river to melt and thereby initiate the change of seasons. Packed with information and featuring vibrant full-color illustrations by Jon Van Zyle, Raven and River brings to life these two important harbingers of Alaska’s spring.
