Good Night. Little Sea Otter by Janet Halfmann. Little Sea Otter is what we call a bedtime "scammer" around here. Before he goes to sleep (cuddling on his mother and swaddled up in seaweed), he must say goodnight to all of the sea creatures around him.
As the setting sun kissed the kelp forest, Little Sea Otter snuggled on Mama's chest. Mama fluffed his fur until he looked like a brown powder puff. Then it was bedtime, but Little Sea Otter wasn't ready to sleep. "I forgot to say good night to the harbor seals," he said.This is a familiar theme (What mom can't relate?), but the ocean setting makes it fresh. The illustrations (by Wish Williams) are beautiful, with rich colors and child-pleasing creatures. The Bibliophile clearly enjoyed the book, as did I.
