Tales of Sea Otters.

I enjoyed this short informative story about the sea otters of where they live, how they thrive, how they care for themselves and their babies as well as kelp forests. With beautiful images (photos) of the sea otters lives and what they eat etc. It just didn't fill the reader in who their predators were though. This would also be very interesting info, author. But these are my reasons for rating this book as is. I think I had received it for free but do not remember if this is So or not. But in return, here is my honest review. Super work author!

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.....
