" Lots of word repetition and very short sentences would make this a good choice for kids learning to read. The illustrations of Otter are adorable. Yes, it is a little stranger than an Otter would be afraid of the water but I don't think it will bother most kids. " said.

" Otter is excited to go to the beach, but is scared to go swimming so he makes a lot of excuses. The excuses work for a little while, but eventually Otter Keeper insists that Otter try swimming (with his help of course!)Great series for beginning readers, recommended for K-3. " said.

" One of my favorite characters, Otter, is back. Otter and Otter keeper are off to the beach for swimming. Great depiction in this easy reader about being hesitant to actually get in the water and swim. Otter keeper like any good parent helps Otter to overcome the fear. " said.

" Cute story and beautifully illustrated as always :) " said.

" my child read this book on his own, if you are teaching your child to read and/ or your child is learning how to read this is a great shared reading book! Lots of sight words and a mini lesson to learn from at the end. " said.

"Otter: Let’s Go Swimming! is the fourth My First I Can Read! Otter adventure by Sam Garton; originally conceived on the I Am Otter blog, Garton has created an adorable, funny character enjoyed by all ages. In this short adventure, Otter visits the beach for the first time along with her best friends Teddy and Giraffe and owner Otter Keeper. While at the beach, Otter must face her fears of the ocean after several comical attempts to avoid swimming. Targeting emergent readers in the My First Shared Reading format, Garton’s text is direct and simple featuring one or two short sentences per page, and, when accompanied by bright illustrations with little background imagery, the story’s details become relatable and easy to understand. Young readers may notice that Otter forgets her swimsuit when trying on her swimming equipment, and this consequently presents a great opportunity to discuss swimming attire, gear, and safety while at a beach or pool. This new addition to the Otter universe will not disappoint long-time fans and can also serve as an entry point for new readers. With the witty quips and adorable illustrations for which Otter stories have come to be known, Garton will entertain adult and child readers alike. " said.

" I hadn't read any of the Otter books for beginning readers, but I was obviously missing out. Adorable illustrations, as always, and aside from being great for kids starting to read, I think it would also work well for preschool storytimes. A fun, easy read! " said.

"My husband, knowing that I adore Otter, bought me this book as a gift. Another home run for him, and for Otter.

She's going to the seashore, and she's terribly excited, but she's a little afraid of swimming. (Actually, this is true to life: baby river otters have to be taught to swim by their mums, and baby sea otters are too buoyant to swim at first. None of them are too thrilled about taking the plunge initially.) So she comes up with typically otter excuses for not swimming. But we get through the day, and our fears, in a typically Otter way.

The book is illustrated with the charming illustrations that Otter lovers have come to expect: engaging, delightful, and just plain fun. Children who are learning to read will enjoy reading this book, since it's an "I Can Read" book... while adults will enjoy reading it aloud while sharing it with smaller children who can sound out words and look at the pictures. Fun for all.
