Sea Otter Rescue is the third in the four-book Wildlife Rescue series. Each book introduces a species of animal in danger somewhere in the world and profiles a rescue center that helps it. Stunning photos by award-winning wildlife photographer Suzi Eszterhas give readers a rare view of these endearing creatures and the high level of care they receive.
Sea Otter Rescue invites readers inside the Alaska SeaLife Center on the shores of Resurrection Bay in the town of Seward, Alaska. It explores how sea otters become orphaned or hurt and the process of healing and rehabilitating them. It also highlights the people who work at the clinic and how they aid the animals.
Other special features include a map showing the sea otter’s native habitat range and an index, a glossary, sources, and an author Q&A based on common questions from kids. An author’s note introduces readers to small-scale ways in which even they can help with sea otter conservation.
A portion of the royalties from this book will be donated to the Alaska SeaLife Center.

Sea Otters Rescue is a very well written educational book for children teaching them that Otters need to be protected more. My youngest daughter wants to own an otter lol. I told her it would be hard to own one, so when I had the chance to review this book it helped her see why it is important to throw away ALL your trash, and why mommy buys DAWN dish soap, to help save animals that get stuck in all the OIL spills. Sea Otters are playful, and they are going down in numbers because of us humans. I recommend this book to all kids and encourage parents to read this to little kids. I give this a high 5 stars out of 5 stars.
I received this copy from Net Galley in exchange for my honest opinion.
