my little book of river otters

Summary:
Each book in this series follows an animal or pair of animals through having babies (or hatching eggs) and the first year of raising their young.
Educational Themes:
Each book discusses the lifestyles of various animals, in a very informative and age appropriate way. They are great launching pads for pretend play.
Reading Level:
2.9
Recommended Age To Read By Yourself:
6 to 9
Recommended Age To Read Together:
3 to 6
Age of child:
Read with 3½ and 4½ year old children.
Purchase Recommendation:
Borrow. These are picture books to introduce children to woodland animals.
Little Kid Reaction:
Both kids loved them (although the 3 year old couldn’t always sit still through the end). The three of us have played being timber wolves, river otters, and turtles for days now.
Big Kid Reaction:
I thoroughly enjoyed reading the books to my kids. We read the whole series over several days time, and I was a little surprised that they enjoyed it so much and kept asking for more. But I am getting a little tired of being Mama Timberwolf.
Pros:

The series covers a lot of animals such as otters and wolves that get little coverage otherwise. I learned a lot from the books, and the kids loved them.

Cons:

None.
