Reviews - What do customers think about Beavers (Kids Can Press Wildlife Series)?
Informative Apr 5, 2000
If you have a school report to write about beavers this book would be very useful. The illustrations are interesting and helpful and I liked the "beaver facts" they included on the page corners. The book is very informative.
