ALA Booklist
With thick, shaggy fur and gentle-looking eyes, sea otter pups sure are cute. This title in the Water Babies series simply, and briefly, introduces pups, mamas, and their habits and habitat. Kids will come away with tidbits of information: sea otters are as big as medium-sized dogs, they like to stay close to the shore, and they sleep with kelp wrapped around them to stay anchored in one place. Each spread tackles a simple category or question ea otter food" d contains basic diagrams and adorable photos, which have captions (like "floating pup") superimposed on top. Also helpful for little ones is the pictorial glossary, which reinforces vocabulary. The small trim size is fitting, given the small pups depicted inside, and emergent readers may not be able to resist giving the book a squeeze.
