Little otter in Chicago - level 1

A little otter is found. People find her on a beach in California. She is not well. Her mother is gone. People must help her.

The otter is five weeks old, and she is better now. She weighs six pounds (2.7 kilograms) and is 22 inches long (56 centimetres). She drinks milk from a bottle. She is beginning to eat solid food.

Difficult words: otter (an animal with nice brown hair which swims and eats fish), weigh (be heavy), solid (something solid is not like water or milk – it stays the same).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
