Do Unto Otters

Today I read one of my new favorite books for school called Do Unto Otters by Laurie Keller. Have you seen it yet?
It's a book about manners and how to treat others the way they "otter" be treated. The illustrations are adorable and each page had my kids giggling. The premise is that the yellow rabbit is shocked to find out otters moved in next door. He doesn't know anything about otters and he is afraid that they will be terrible neighbors. The owl tells him to "Do unto otters and you would have otters do unto you." So cute!
We made an anchor chart and listed some ways to do unto otters others. My students loved it! 

Laurie Keller has some cute activities on her website too that you might want to use in class. Happy Monday y'all!


  1. We LOVE this hilarious book . . .and your anchor chart is amazing!! Pinned it.

    When we first stumbled on it, we wrote to the author. She's up in MI and started out writing greeting cards. We also love her Scrambled States of America!
