Beavers are fascinating animals. They build their own homes and live in family groups. They keep busy with their sharp teeth, powerful tails, and big webbed feet. Their work helps to preserve wetlands. Gibbons explores where they live, what they eat, how they raise their young, and much more.
THE REVIEWS ARE IN
"Gibbons is a master at creating factual books through which young readers can explore details of nature at an acessible and engaging depth. Her latest uses narrative text, generous and accurate watercolor illustrations, and informative inset boxes to show and tell readers about the habits, environments, family structure, and anatomy of the beaver. . . . As both a read-aloud and a resource for children in the earliest grades looking for a research source, this stands as a model."—Booklist
"A great source for learning more about beavers and an incentive to get out in nature and see their handiwork."—Kirkus Reviews
