Otters Love to Play

By Jonathan London
Illustrated by Meilo So

“The story of an action-filled year in the life of a North American river otter family. . . . Fun and informative, this beautifully illustrated, strong narrative belongs in every collection.” — School Library Journal (starred review)

It’s 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 — and Jonathan London’s lively text and Meilo So’s fluid watercolors invite you to share in the joy.

  • Who can resist being charmed by an otter? While the theme of playing is young and friendly, the text also explains the importance of play in the animal world.
  • By the author of the Froggy series (and the recent Hippos Are Huge!).
  • Includes an index and an author's note.
