Annotation

Two seals are sitting on a rock. When others need shelter, do they share it? This book shows there are two sides to every story. A clever picture book has one story that can be read two different ways. When read from front to back, the seals believe there is definitely no room on their rock for others. But when the book is read from back to front, the seals welcome others to shelter on their rock. A heart warming story about sharing and compassion.
