Good Night Little Sea Otter is a gem of a book that can be read to a young child at bedtime. The soft illustrations are simply the best. All parents can relate to how clever the little Otter is in finding ways to avoid going to sleep just like all children do.

The book is very engaging and can teach children about the creatures that live in the sea. Parents can also use the book in various ways to teach young children about colors and simple words.  I can see the book as a valuable resource to be used in a preschool and daycare centers to teach: simple science concepts, language, colors, shapes and friendship. The story also showcases the strong bond that exists between mom and child.

This is the second book I have read and reviewed for Janet Halfmann. I’m growing quite fond with her abilities to write about animals. The author has a unique way of using animals to teach the young reader many important facts about science. Her writing style leaves me wanting to read all of her published books.

Lastly, Wish Williams’ illustrations made the story jump off the page. Every well written picture book story must always be complemented with top-notch art work.
