Even though it's bedtime and the setting sun has kissed the kelp forest, Little Sea Otter is not ready to sleep in Good Night, Little Sea Otter. He realizes he forgot to say good night to some of his friends. So Little Sea Otter says good night to the harbor seals, the sea lions, the fish, and more. As he waits for the very last good night, he asks Mama if he missed anyone. "You missed ME!" says Mama. Surrounded by all of his friends, Little Sea Otter finally settles down to sleep cuddled up in his mama's loving arms in a bed of kelp.
This is a wonderful story to share with your little ones as they say good night to the moon and stars. Children will look forward to bedtime just so they can share a good night with their own ocean friends and they'll feel as though they're right under the twinkling stars as they gaze at the rich, colorful art by Wish Williams.
