Introducing Leopard and Silkie: West Seattle's most famous seals

Visit our cool, new website!
And now for something purely delightful: the children's book, Leopard & Silkie, just out fromBrenda Peterson with photographs by Robin Lindsey (Henry Holt, 2012) about the Seal Sittersquest to protect the eponymous baby seals right here in West Seattle.
Leopard and Silkie, just out from local author Brenda Peterson and photographer Robin Lindsey is a delightful and educational read for kids
The book is fabulously illustrated with Lindsey's one of a kind photographs of baby seals Leopard and Silkie basking, yawning, snoozing, hanging out with their mom, and basically being cuter than you might think possible:
The local seal pups of the Salish Sea and the Seal Sitters' work to protect them is the subject of a new children's book

Kid Miles provides a role model for the adults on the beach, keeping curious humans and their pets away away from baby seals on the beach, as a Seal Sitter volunteer.

It's a delight of a book that also delivers plenty of information about the seals and their lives in the Salish Sea in a very readable, kid-friendly page turner.
