She licks them and keeps them close. The wolf pack checks on them. The tiny pups are still blind, and they can hardly make a sound, but as they grow a little, they start to crawl and explore their new home. Suddenly, a great storm is upon the forest. The water rises for days and days. The pups could be in danger. How can the mother wolf make sure her pups are safe? Will others come to help?
