Sea Sounds: Sammy the Sea Otter Makes New Friends Published by Outskirts Press

Children’s author Cory Colbert invites his young readers to travel the alphabet with him and recognize the common thread of the letter “C” that runs through his imaginative tale of Sammy’s seaside adventures with Clyde the Crab.

Coffeyville, KS, June 29, 2011 --( Cory Colbert announced today the release of Sammy the Sea Otter Makes New Friends, Adventures of Sammy the Sea Otter, published by Outskirts Press. Colbert’s new children’s book takes young readers and listeners on an educational romp through the alliterative activities of Clyde the Crab in order to foster new word recognition and letter sound emphasis for beginning readers and speakers of English.

Sammy the sea otter -- who is, of course, from Saskatchewan -- loves to snow ski, slide, snowshoe, swim and snorkel. He meets up with Clyde the Crab who is -- not surprisingly -- a cook in a cafeteria and has a home full of carrots, cauliflower, cabbage, corn dogs and coconut milk to drink.

So begins the alliterative adventure of these two playful friends as author Colbert serves up a cornucopia of words that start with the letter “C” and challenges his readers to find them all from the beginning to the end of this charming tale.

“Our best resource for a happy future is a happy child,” says Colbert.

While beginning readers and those who are just learning the language will enjoy playing the game of locating each and every “C” word in the tale, they’ll also be improving their language skills in the best of both “E” worlds: education and entertainment.

Sammy the Sea Otter Makes New Friends is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Noble and at for a maximum trade discount in quantities of ten or more.
