Ka-splash Head to the river, where a frolicsome bunch of otters plays all year round in a nonfiction story sprinkled with facts and loaded with fun. It s spring, and a litter of baby river otters emerges from a den . . . to play Follow the otters through the seasons as they chase one another, slide down a mudbank, jump in a pile of leaves, and learn to swim. Even while catching fish for their dinner or grooming themselves in the snow, otters love to play and Jonathan London s lively text and Meilo So s fluid watercolors invite you to share in the joy.
