Three Little Beavers

You know the old saying, "busy as a beaver"? Well I can relate because that's how I felt working on the illustrations for Three Little Beavers by Jean Heilprin Diehl.

Beatrix the beaver can't get a break. Her brother Bevan is an expert at building. Her sister Beverly is an amazing swimmer. Isn't there anything that Beatrix is good at?

Kids will relate to the plight of these busy little creatures as well. As Beatrix swims away, thinking nobody will care she finds herself trapped. Her siblings come to rescue her but become trapped as well. There's lots of adventures and kids will love reading and learning a lot about these busy little beavers.

Sylvan Dell Publishing also includes a creative minds section and teaching activities in the back of each of their books.
