Beaver is seeking adventures, but he has lost the way. Now he wants to go home again. Does he live in that hidden hole underneath an oak tree? In the nest high up on the roof? Or in that big tower of mud? Architect Magnus Weightman takes you along on a visit of numerous fabulous animal dwellings. Will you help Beaver to find his own home?
This was a cute book about a beaver that leaves home only to realize that he doesn't know how to return. The illustrations and text follow him as he passes by all sorts of other animals and their dwellings in search of his home.
This was a very simple yet adorable book. The images are very detailed and I think parents and young readers will love this book for a few reasons. The book teaches readers about different types of animal dwellings while beaver is looking for his home. It is presented as questions and answers, so that not only do you see the image but you learn about how the homes is built. Readers will learn who the homes belong to and some of the features of those homes.
The illustrations are wonderfully done, 2-page spreads and have so many fun things to look at for those listening to the story and reading it. The details are what make this book stand out. They help the story along very well.
Overall I think that this is a fun book for both young readers and parents, and I think that you have to see it in order to appreciate all of its beauty.
