This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations, Carolsue!
Award-winning author Janet Halfmann’s newest book, Good Night, Little Sea Otter, was an instant hit with all three of my kids – so much so that Emma made a rare request that we re-read it as soon as we finished it the first time round. The illustrations by Wish Williams are darling, and they convey the feeling of the gently flowing text beautifully. The story is simple: a little sea otter just has to say good night to everyone before he can go to sleep. I enjoyed the alliterations in the text, as well as the story and pictures, and I learned something new: sea otters wrap themselves in seaweed to sleep so they won’t float away! Emma paid close attention to the words, and I have a feeling she will be “reading” (reciting) this book soon. Lily was all about the baby animals. Johnny insisted that the sea otters were bears, not sea otters – which just goes to show just how much my bear-loving son adored this book. And no wonder – like the little sea otter, Johnny becomes incredibly chatty come bed time!
