Being a Manatee
Can You Imagine?
The strange-looking sea mammal called the manatee is a gentle creature. This book invites readers to imagine themselves as a manatee living its slow-moving, quiet life. Readers will picture themselves with algae and barnacles growing on their skin, coming up to take a breath every few minutes, and always searching for a tasty plant to eat. Cute and colorful photographs of manatees support the fascinating text, and the Florida manatee's struggle to stay alive is closely examined.
