Mr. Rabbit’s new neighbors are otters. Otters! But he doesn’t know anything about otters. Will they get along? Will they be friends? “Just treat otters the same way you’d like them to treat you,” advises Mr. Owl.

Parents and young readers, be sure to check out the 2015 Michigan Reads! title Do Unto Otters by Laurie Keller! Each year, the Library of Michigan works to promote early childhood literacy by selecting one picture book for parents, grandparents, teachers, and caregivers across the state to enjoy with their young readers. This year’s selection, Do Unto Otters, is a charming read that uses humor and colorful illustrations to explore concepts like kindness, manners, and the Golden Rule.
You can also pick up coloring sheets, bookmarks, and sign our poster in the kids’ room once you’ve read the book, or watch the Do Unto Otters BookFlix movie, available through the Michigan eLibrary.
