Pup the Sea Otter Reviews
Love this book! Absolutely beautiful and adorable illustrations! My only criticism is that in the author's note, he mentions that MOST sea otter pups die from oil spills, so I would have been more interested in seeing an oil "attack" than the shark attack in the story; it would've been more poignant!
Did you know that otters are the largest member of the weasel family? They are still pretty small in comparison with the majority of the other marine animals, and this book tells the tale of a baby sea otter learning the ropes with his mother. A great informative story, with some action/scary parts. Too long for storytime, but would be excellent for a young listener/reader interested in learning more about otters.
A read aloud worthy story about the life cycle of a young sea otter. I really like all of the facts tucked into the story; I learned so much about sea otters all the while I was fully engrossed in the story of the young pup's development. An author's note follows the story and does a great job of providing geographic. historic, and conservation info to encourage readers to help protect the habitats sea otters live in. Hihgly recommended for sharing with PreK-3.
The illustrations were simple gorgeous! They were the whole reason I picked it up in the first place. However, I found the story a bit "meh" - perhaps I just wasn't expecting such a non-fiction feel. But I can't emphasize enough how much I loved the pictures!
Not half bad. Could go either way - nonfiction or kids' picture book - and there's value to be found in both. My library has it as a picture book, since it's light on sources and backmatter and instead focuses on the gorgeous illustrations and linear story.
Informative and perect for young readers. Additonal information about sea otters at the end of the book will inspire curious readers to learn more about sea otters.
Great book about the life cycle of sea otters. I will use it when we study animal adaptations.
A great non-fiction read aloud about baby sea otters. Too long for storytime but great for elementary children.
