'Potter the Otter: a tale about water' is a story book which encourages young children to choose water as a drink. The story focuses on Potter, an otter who likes to drink water, who encourages his friends to switch from sugary drinks to water. The story was developed by First 5 Santa Clara County (USA), who generously provided permission to use the story and imagery, and is available online at

To support the story book the Central Coast Health Promotion Service has developed a range of educator resources including a resource booklet with activity ideas and links to the EYLF and NQS to support learning experiences, and information for families. These are available below.
