Little Otter, Little Trouble is a wordless picture book that was inspired by the true story of a smooth-coated otter pup that was left behind by its family.
Teaching with wordless picture books fosters observation and critical thinking skills in children as they figure out the story plot and create possible dialogues to match the illustrations.
Educators and parents of preschoolers may also use the 3-2-1 Otter Fun activity guide at the end of this e-book to further promote language and communication skills.
The Komodo dragon is the world’s largest living lizard. Found only on five Indonesian islands, including Komodo Island, this threatened reptile is one of Indonesia’s national treasures.

Orangutans are apes. The word ‘orangutan’ means ‘man of the forest’ in Malay. Here in Singapore Zoo, you are likely to see orangutans swinging amongst play structures or having fun with a gunny sack.
In this video, we feature Merlin the orangutan. Merlin was born on 8th October 2004 and his favourite fruit is durian. He was named after the grandson of Jane Goodall, a famous primatologist who visited Singapore Zoo a few weeks after he was born.
