Keith and the Otter Brothers
By KATHLEEN W. REDMAN
  

1     "And a fine day it is, children. Today we are going out to the coast to have a chat with the Otter brothers, Otto and Oscar. There they are! Hi, Oscar. Hi, Otto!"
 
2     "Hello, to you, too. Otto and I are happy to have you and the children here today."
 
3     "We are happy to be here. It is a little cold, though."
 
4     "Well, Keith, we like to swim and fish in very cold water. That's why Oscar and I live in the North Pacific."
 
5     "That's true, and that is why Otto and I have the warmest fur of any animal. We spend a lot of time grooming our coats to keep them warm and fluffy. Sometimes we work on them for three hours!"
 
6     "That's quite a long time, Oscar. What else do you do during the day?"
 
7     "We look for food. Otto likes clams. I prefer sea urchins."
 
8     "How do you get their shells open?"
 
9     "We swim on our backs. We put a stone on our chests and pound the shells against the stones. I have a great stone. I keep it in a sort of pocket under my armpit. Oscar keeps his in his pocket, too."
