Baby walrus – level 1

11-07-2014 15:00

A walrus is born at a zoo. The zoo is in Germany. Walruses are born rarely at zoos, so this is something special. The zoo is very happy. It is the zoo’s first baby walrus. The baby walrus is a star.

The calf and its mother must be safe. They are in a quiet part of the zoo. The baby has no name yet. People will choose it. Visitors will choose it soon.

Difficult words: rarely (not often), special (it is not normal), star (famous), calf (young animal).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Any suggestions for the name? :-)
