Saturday Storytime: The Sea of Sleep

Amy reads The Sea of Sleep, written by Warren Hanson with illustrations by Jim LaMarche, published by Scholastic.

Baby Otter is sleepy after a long day of play. Now he cuddles in his mama’s arms as calm, silvery waters rock him gently toward sleep. But there are many wondrous things to see before he gets there.

They drift past leaping dolphins and schools of swimming fish. And there’s the loving, beaming moon, who rests her friendly face on the water’s sparkling surface. All the while, jewel-like stars light their way as they glide through the night toward morning.

After the story, Amy demonstrates how to make a papercraft otter family with a parent and child. You otter try it.
