Every evening Otto’s family come together to hold hands when they sleep. Otto feels safest holding hands and in the morning he doesn’t want to let go! Poor Otto’s parents can’t get anything done with him holding on to them, but he’s just too worried and afraid to be left on his own. What will persuade the little otter to face his fears and finally let go? Watch Otto gain in confidence - and happiness - as he learns to do things without other people's help. This gentle story about letting go and standing on your own two feet is perfect for reading at bedtime with a family member or sharing in the classroom. Also includes a set of supporting notes for parents and teachers with questions to encourage discussion of the themes in the book, either at home or in the classroom.
