Tepee the Manatee by Helen Digges Spivey
Approx. 6,100 words.
Published on September 6, 2011.
A story for the curious, the young and those who are young at heart --- with photos. It follows the underwater adventures of a little manatee calf, what it must learn about itself, and where it must live. Or as Tepee would put it, “live as an ‘in-danger’ species.”
A glimpse of a life cycle that might be all but gone before you have a chance to read this book to the next generation.
