Once again, Otter is cute and vulnerable in this charming story about how hard it can be to share. Otter Loves Easter! gives a holiday twist to Otter's struggle not to be selfish -- and gluttonous. With the help of Otter Keeper and her stuffed animals, which she relates to as if they were friends, she learns her lesson.

As usual, the illustrations of Otter and her toys are irresistible. Especially adorable is the image of Otter in fluffy bunny ears and cottontail. An extra nice touch: pastel yellow, lavender, and turquoise Easter egg-patterned endpapers.
