Antarctica is the coldest place on earth. Ice covers the mountains, the valleys, and even the sea. In this frozen winter world, every creature is waiting for summer to come.
When the sunny days arrive, a burst of new life begins. A mother Weddell seal finds a safe spot on the surface of the ice to have her baby. Nearby, a little Adélie penguin steals rocks from his neighbor to make a nest. A big emperor penguin works hard to find enough food for his newly hatched chick. The young animals must grow quickly, for summer in Antarctica is brief, and all too soon it will be winter once again.
