Jim Arnosky is well known for his "keen observations of nature and his fine artistic talent" (School Library Journal). He has written and illustrated many children’s books. Otters Under Water was called "first-rate natural history for the youngest" by Kirkus Reviews (pointer review), and School Library Journal wrote that in it "each of his creatures exhibits a distinct individualism." Every Autumn Comes the Bear was called "vibrant, translucent and strikingly composed" by Publishers Weekly, and Booklist wrote "Arnosky's radiant pictures have a dazzling sense of pattern and composition . . . and a sense of mystery. A beautiful, imaginative, and informative approach." School Library Journal said of Rabbits & Raindrops, “Perfect for story-time or lap-time reading, this book will give children a feeling of security and contentment.”

PreSchool-Grade 2-- In the footsteps of Arnosky's other simple nature books--Deer at the Brook (1986), Come Out , Muskrats (1989), Racoons and Ripe Corn (1987), Watching Foxes (1984, all Lothrop)--comes this charming, true-to-life glimpse of two young otters swimming, playing, and feeding in a sunlit pond under the watchful gaze of their mother. As always, this naturalist author/artist has enhanced the basic lesson through his inclusion of plants, creatures, and rock formations that form a part of the animals' natural habitat. His carefully executed colored-pencil and watercolor illustrations, all unbordered double-page spreads, reflect his keen observations of nature and his fine artistic talent. Each of his creatures exhibits a distinct individualism, adding character to the realistic scenes. The short, simple, oversized text, one sentence or phrase to a page, succinctly describes the pictured activity without detracting from the eye-catching view. This slim volume will appeal to beginning readers and is a delightful lap book for preschoolers as well. --Susan Scheps, Shaker Heights Pub. Lib . , OH
