Otter pups c Fluffy, mischievous otter pups are close to irresistible, especially for young children. Enter this well-organized and fascinating volume on otters, accompanied by squee-worthy photos. Browsers of all ages will be drawn to these pictures, which not only capture the animals’ charisma but showcase their abilities and behavior, too. Otter pups covering their eyes while they nap, squealing for their caretakers, and using their bellies as plates are just a few of the activities depicted in the large, clear photos. The informative and detailed text will further spark curiosity and keep readers engaged. Eszterhas’s accessible text discusses the otters’ behavior and biological needs while explaining how staff at the Alaska SeaLife center care for orphaned sea otter pups. Readers will be delighted to learn about how otter fur acts as a flotation device and how the mother wraps her babies in kelp to keep the pups from floating away while she hunts. A glossary, index, sources, a question-and-answer section, and a list of ways to help sea otters further expand the book’s utility for classrooms and projects. VERDICT This is an excellent choice to inspire elementary students’ interest in conservation, ocean life, and animal behavior.—Rachel Anne Mencke, St. Matthew’s Parish School, Pacific Palisades, CA
