Book Review


It is summer and Otter is so excited to go to the beach. He pictures himself being a very good swimmer, but the closer he gets to the water, the more scared he becomes. Otter’s owner tries many different things to encourage Otter. For example, he swims in the ocean with an inner tube. Next, he swims in the ocean with Otter’s stuffed animals, which successfully convinces Otter to get in the water. Otter finally enjoys kicking and splashing. Time flies as Otter has fun at the beach, and soon it is time to go home, but of course, Otter still wants to swim!
