The Adventures of Otto: Swing, Otto, Swing! by David Milgrim- OPTIONAL

Milgrim, David. The Adventures of Otto: Swing, Otto, Swing!, PICTURE. Simon Spotlight, 2016. $3.99. Otto the robot wants to swing on vines just like his monkey friends. But, he is much too heavy and keeps snapping the vines from the tree and even when the monkeys try to give him instructions on how to swing, it just doesn’t work. So, Otto thinks of an alternative and builds himself a nice, sturdy swing set. This is an leveled early reader. The text is sparse and simple, with a basic premise and pictures. It has a cute little ending and meets the purpose of an easy reader, but it’s nothing phenomenal. PRE-K, EL (K-3)- OPTIONAL. Reviewed by Shay, School Librarian
