A Complimentary CD provided with the purchase of the Akai and Mamoo Book. Akai and Mamoo, two adventuresome juvenile Orca whales, wish to explore outside their ocean inlet. Although Mother and Aunty warn their Orca children of some of the dangers outside the inlet, the two mischievous Orca cousins are curious about their ocean surroundings. After a bedtime story about their Orca ancestors, Akai and Mamoo wake early in the morning, anxious to visit the places and see the things that their ancestors experienced.

About the complimentary CD: Everybody's World CD is a fantastic collection of songs that accompanies the Akai and Mamoo book and engages the singers and listeners by recognizing that we must share our world in a peaceful and just way with the creatures of the earth. Accompanied by an overture performed by the Red Deer Symphony, the beautifully written songs inspire adults and bring joy to children. Each song on this disc mirrors part of the story and the music is intended to convey both the beauty of the undersea world and an understanding of the environmental challenges it faces. It is our hope that this music will take you on an imaginative and unforgettable musical journey through the oceanic landscape and the lives of the creatures who live there.
