The otter book
It was really good by my opinion
The sea Otter
I find the little zinging noise between sections or paragraphs at the latter half of the book to be a distraction, even an annoyance. Is there some way I can disable that? Other than that a great educational tool. I did not know that sea otters can retract their fore paw claws. I wonder why they have that ability.....
It's amazing it says a poem then tells a fact for each part of the poem about sea otters.
