Peter the Little Irish Seal

This is a story about the special relationship between a mother and her child. Peter and his mother are very special seals called Selkies. According to Celtic folklore, a Selkie can shed its skin and become human. Before this is possible, Mama Kim must teach Peter how to sustain himself by learning to swim and catch his own food. Peter’s mother knows that someday she must tell him of his special power, and she also knows that he will leave her one-day and go out on his own. This book is designed to be a “read-to-me” book for children aged 2 to 7 years, but children of all ages, including parents and grandparents will enjoy this relationship story!
