In a follow-up to Nesting, this classic and beautifully illustrated picture book by celebrated author-illustrator Henry Cole follows a family of beavers. Perfect for parents and teachers to share with young children to introduce beginning life science concepts.
With stunning line art and a limited color palette, the simple text follows a family of beavers as they do what beavers do best: build! Two beavers find a stream, build a dam, and raise a family in their new lodge. When the dam is threatened by storms, the beavers work hard to rebuild it.
FOLLOW-UP TO NESTING: This book has the same gorgeous art style, limited color palette, and simple text structure as Nesting, which received four starred reviews, was an Indie Bestseller, and a Junior Library Guild selection.
SCIENCE CONTENT: The information about beavers included throughout is introductory and the perfect primer for young nature lovers. Concepts include: life cycle, feeding habits, mating, nesting, caring for young, survival, and the wetlands ecosystem. An author’s note provides more information at the end of the book.
SOCIAL-EMOTIONAL LEARNING: The beavers in this book exhibit responsible decision-making by identifying crucial survival problems and solving them.
