Otters Love to Play by Jonathan London -OPTIONAL

London, Jonathan Otters Love to Play Candlewick Press, 2016. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK/NON-FICTION
This book features factual information about otters, told in semi-story format as the pups are born in the spring. Readers learn about the development and the training of the otters pups by their mother. Threaded throughout is their love of playing. Illustrations are easy to share and cover large two page spreads.
This is a picture book about animals that has enough information for a pretty decent animal report and would still be short enough for a read-aloud. There is even a page in the back about conservation. The illustrations of the otters are cute. But honestly I would rather just have an informational books with lush photography.
