Learn how a baby sea otter grows up

At the edge of the ocean, a baby sea otter is born. The newborn pup is little and helpless. Her mother must protect her from predators like the fierce bald eagles that are always ready to swoop after a baby.

The young otter grows up quickly. When she is old enough to fend for herself, she finds a mate. Soon the sea otter will have a tiny pup of her own.

In simple, evocative text and vibrant illustrations, this picture book explores the life cycle of the sea otter.
