Otters Love to Play

author: Jonathan London
illustrator: Meilo So

Itís spring, and a litter of baby river otters emerges from a den . . . to play! Follow the otters through the seasons as they chase one another, slide down a mudbank, jump in a pile of leaves, and learn to swim. Even while catching fish for their dinner or grooming themselves in the snow, otters love to play ó and Jonathan Londonís lively text and Meilo Soís fluid watercolors invite you to share in the joy.

Ka-splash! Head to the river, where a frolicsome bunch of otters plays all year round in a nonfiction story sprinkled with facts ó and loaded with fun.
