The Walrus and the Whale
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Title: Teachers may want to use a map of North America to point out the location of the Bering Sea to children and discuss the climate of that region in relation to the habitat of the walrus and whale.
 
2     Walrus waved goodbye and twitched his whiskers. He was off to sea for the summer. Walrus had been watching and waiting for the weather to bring the right currents for summer feeding.
 
3     Walrus wanted to be ready for winter. Walrus had to eat when the sea worms and clams were plentiful. While out swimming, Walrus met a white whale. White whales are sometimes called beluga whales. They became friends and wandered the Bering Sea together that summer.
