    Sea Otters are an endangered species, native to the coasts of the northern and eastern North Pacific Ocean. While many people never see a Sea Otter in the wild, they are out there. When a sea otter is injured or washed ashore (usually young ones) one place where they are taken and looked after is the Alaska Sea Life Center, located on the shores of Resurrection Bay in Seward, Alaska. This book details how they are taken care of and rehabilitated. Author Suzi Eszterhas an award winning Wildlife photographer who takes us on a tour of this facility and shares the sea otter's rescue and rehab. The end of the book talks about conservation, as well as what we can do to save wildlife (i.e. reducing pollutants, cleaning up rivers and streams etc.). The photographs that accompany the text are wonderful. You just want to grab on and give these animals a great big hug. I can see children wanting a sea otter as a pet after they read this book. I love that a portion of the royalties from the sale of this book will go to the Alaskan Sea Life Center. A great book for animal lovers, those interested in endangered species and conservationists. This is a children's book, but I learned things from it that I did not know. I recommend this book to be in all school libraries. The publisher generously provided me with a copy of this book via Netgalley.

    I received a copy of this book from Net Galley in exchange for a fair review. Well, of course, since my love of otters is legendary, I'd be hard pressed not to like a book about Otter Rescue. But this book is really excellent, from its lush photos to the quality of information about what makes otters the unique creatures they are and important concepts in wild animal rescue. It also raises environmental awareness about how fragile their ecosystem can be. While pricey for a children's picture book, a portion of the royalties will go to the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska. This is a wonderful book worth gifting to children who love wild animals and who are curious about helping them. I look forward to checking out the other volumes in the Rescue series.

    I love this book! It is a nonfiction title that kids will love too. Learn about the Sea-life Center in Seward Alaska and all of the good they do for the sea life in and around Resurrection Bay. Having been to this center before I would gladly go again and support the work of this great institution. Yes this book covers the sea otters rescued and brought to this facility, it is so much more than that. This title puts a spotlight on the need for us as humans to take care of this delicate planet of ours and ALL if it inhabitants! Love! Love! Love!

    Can't have enough books about otters, especially when they are well-written and filled with engaging photographs. Backmatter includes a "Kids Ask Suzi" page, sources, a glossary and index.

    Who can resist that cute little face? The sea otter, one of the most popular animal subjects. Always something new to learn.

    This book is published toward the elementary age range, but I feel that it is perfect for anyone that wants to know more about Sea Otters or the Alaska SeaLife Center. This book describes how Sea Otter live, as well as, how they arrive at the SeaLife Center. The reader is also given reasons why an otter may or may not be released back to the sea. Wonderful images to go with the text! Everyone should read this book!*Be sure to buy this book, as a portion of the money goes to the Alaska SeaLife Center!*Thank you Owlkids Books and NetGalley for the digital ARC of this book, which made this honest review possible.

    Thanks to net galley.com, Suzi Eszterhas and Owlkids Books for the advance copy for my honest review. Sea Otters are an endangered species, native to the coasts of the northern and eastern North Pacific Ocean and consider yourself luck if you've seen one in the Wild. While this really is a Kids book. I still found it interesting to read Sea Otter Rescue, as a Kid I thought Otters in general regardless of the type were pretty interesting to read about and fascinating to watch even if in captivity in Zoo's. The coolest thing about my time working for Terminix in Maine. Was getting to see a North American River Otter, eating fish by a river next to a Big Apple Convenient Store were I stopped for lunch.Sea Otter Rescue is about the Alaska Sea Life Center, located on the shores of Resurrection Bay in Seward, Alaska and how they rehabilitate Sea Otter's. Sea Otter Rescue is the third in a series, were young readers learn about Wildlife Rescue. Author Suzi Eszterhas an award winning Wildlife photographer. She takes you inside the Alaska Sea Life Center to learn how the facility takes in Sea Otters as Orphans, sick or injured from all over Alaska and the surrounding area and rehabilitates them. The sick or injured adults get nursed back health wise, ultimately will be re-released back into the wild and the ones they can't end up finding homes at Zoo's or Aquarium's. Found it educational reading about the 24hour a day process they do to take care of the young orphan Sea Otters due to the importance it's first six months of life. For the first six months of their life in the Wild, their mom teaches them everything they'll need to know to survive in the wild and thus they are the most critical. The Center tries to recreate that with them using human interaction. Based on the time the young orphans spent with their mom's, when they first arrive at the Center depending on their age. A few end up being released into the wild but the majority of them end up finding homes at Zoo's and Aquarium's. Which ultimately is a better life for them, since they wouldn't be able to survive in the Wild. While it's a Kids book, it's still a decent read, you just knew to remember who it's written for and it definitely a great gift for a young reader.

    Visiting Sewell, Alaska last year and learning that long ago when the Russians owned this land, they killed sea otters for their wonderful pelts, used mainly for warm hats to fight the cold weather in their country, peaked my interest. Sea otters were close to extinction in this area of the world, and still are on the endangered list. Suzi Eszterhas' Wildlife Rescue book describes how a team of experts are saving baby otters, usually abandoned on the shores of Alaska. These animals are taken to the Alaska Sea Life Center in Sewell, Alaska. There they test them for diseases and feed and care for them 24 hours a day. Sea otters are one of the most difficult sea life animals to care for. This book is so user friendly, each page has a large picture of an adorable sea otter either being cared for by a member of the rescue team, or in their natural habitat. The photograph of the little otter with his paws over his eyes, and the one with the otter on his back with food on his belly that he's learning to eat (otter do this in the wild) are both precious. Young readers will learn much about the conservation issues of otters and even how they can help them survive. A glossary, index, and great web page can lead to further research.

    After reading Sea Otter Rescue by Suzi Eszterhas, I had a new admiration for all of the work that the Seattle Aquarium undertook for the rescued sea otter, Rialto! In 44 pages, Eszterhas documents with photos and text how otters are rescued and cared for until they find their forever homes. This book would lend itself nicely to being read aloud to a class (third or fourth grade, perhaps) with a follow-up activity online. Facts such as air pockets in otters' fur to keep them afloat, underarm pockets to store food and tools, and otters being very social animals will fascinate the adult as well as the child reader. Also interesting are "Kids ask Suzi," and the Sources sections (many of her sources are from discussions with the attending veterinarians!). This was a Junior Library Guild selection and is the third in the Wildlife Rescue series (Koala Hospital, Orangutan Orphanage) by Eszterhas .

    This third in a series of books about rescuing wildlife focuses on the needs of sea otters. Due to severe hunting, natural disasters, and oil spills, the sea otters of Alaska are in trouble. But thanks to the efforts of the Alaska SeaLife Center in Alaska, they are making a comeback. This book highlights the individuals who work at the Center helping orphaned sea otters get ready to return to the sea (whenever possible). I enjoyed reading about the work of these dedicated individuals and the amazing work they do. The gorgeous photographs and readable text make this a perfect book for young animal lovers or those interested in careers working with animals. Books like this one also show how humans can help the earth and its creatures rather than hurting them.

    Sea Otters Rescue is a very well written educational book for children teaching them that Otters need to be protected more. My youngest daughter wants to own an otter lol. I told her it would be hard to own one, so when I had the chance to review this book it helped her see why it is important to throw away ALL your trash, and why mommy buys DAWN dish soap, to help save animals that get stuck in all the OIL spills. Sea Otters are playful, and they are going down in numbers because of us humans. I recommend this book to all kids and encourage parents to read this to little kids. I give this a high 5 stars out of 5 stars.

    What a delightful informational book. Sea Otter Rescue by Suzi Eszterhas was so enjoyable as I read it with my 5-year-old grandson that he stated, “It’s my favorite!” I too thought it was wonderful.It has excellent illustrations with text that is not too much for a read aloud with the younger crowd but enough for the older ones. There is much to learn about sea otters in general as the book follows the rescue and raising of otter pups. Well done.The publisher through Net Galley provided a copy.

    My son loves sea animals and all sorts of animal rescue shows. This book showed him first hand what happens at an animal rescue facility. The sea otters are absolutely adorable. The incredible photographs show ever stage of their rescue and what the facility does to help rehabilitate them. It shows the vets working with the animals, as well as the animals in their natural environments with their moms. This was a very informative book, very colorful and absolutely wonderful for any inquisitive young child.

    What a cute and informational book! As rewarding as it was to just flip through and look at the pictures, the text was enjoyable, too. Full of information about baby otters and their rescue and conservation efforts, this book encourages the reader to get involved. I received this book via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
