Reviews - What do customers think about Building Beavers (Pull Ahead Books)?
Building Beavers is Dam Fine Reading! Feb 5, 2001
Ms. Martin-James has written an engaging and fun book that is a delight for children AND their parents -- and is educational at the same time. Highly recommended for a nature-loving youngster.
Maud's opinion Apr 26, 2000
The author-photographer uses a scientific approach by asking a question about beavers and/or their skills, then proceeding with text and photos to answer the question with facts. In this style a beaver's lodge and dam are explained as are the beavers' anatomical adaptations, diet and family life. This is a lovely book giving great information in a simple format for young and those who might be reading with them. There is a simple glossary, index and diagram of a beaver. The photographs are excellent showing beavers building, repairing, playing with or supporting the young, and even underwater shots. Easy to read and understand but with lots of information. Enjoy!
