Swim the Silver Sea, Joshie Otter

Swim the Silver Sea, Joshie Otter




This soothing bedtime read-aloud features Alaskan coastal wildlife and a touching lullaby.

Joshie Otter wants to play, but Mama says not today . . . and so Joshie sets out to find some new pals. He sees many different sea animals, but no one wants to play. Soon, he swims too far out, but is able to find his way home when his mother sings a sweet song.

“Splendid paintings in a variety of shimmering Arctic hues illustrate a soothing bedtime story . . . This attractive picture book has the draws of an affectionate mother-offspring bond.”—Booklist

“An excellent addition to picture-book collections that’s sure to be read over and over by parents looking for that perfect soothing bedtime story.”—School Library Journal
