ALA Booklist
Solid information and excellent photographs make these titles in the Animals at Risk series a good choice for kids beginning to learn about endangered species. Each book explains how the subject animal has become nearly extinct and what is being done to increase their numbers. Sea Otters in Danger explains how these cuties have been hunted for their fur and lost their lives in oil spills. They are one of very few prehensile animals and use their paws to open shellfish. All books in the series feature captions that advance the text and short, informative "Wild Facts." A fine introduction to a subject children will continue to learn about.

Sea otters are perhaps the cutest animals in the ocean. Readers will agree when they set their eyes on photographs of these fascinating mammals trying to survive in the icy waters of the North Pacific Ocean. These friendly animals have the densest fur in the world, an adaptation that both helps them keep warm yet hurts them as fur traders overhunted them. Today, the sea otter population is fighting for its life. Readers will find out what people are doing to help them.
