Adorable Otter's imagination gets her mildly in trouble again in this delightful celebration of independent play and let's pretend. Otter's a great stand-in for a kid who gets carried away at make-believe. Otter Keeper is patient and tolerant and understands that Otter's just a creative self-starter whose heart is in the right place.

The wonderful illustrations are full of fun details and deadpan expressions on the toys Otter plays with and imbues with opinions and reactions as he narrates their play, even though Teddy, for example, looks comatose at all times.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
