I really like Little Beaver and The Echo, it has such and simple message that can convey so many feelings that many in the class both teacher and pupils will have experienced more than once in their life. This is an absolutely lovely book about lonliness and the human need for friendship, and is a reminder to all of us that we all need companionship. A touching, beautifully illustrated children's tale * Western Morning News * Gets the mixture, for child and adult, exactly right and is a story of enormous charm.Little Beaver feels a little less lonely now, and sets off in his boat to befriend the lonely individual across the pond. They are beautifully illustrated by one of my favourite picture book artists, the British artist, Sarah Fox-Davies. Little Beaver paddles around the lake, meeting different animals along the way, and eventually an older beaver that explains a little about the Echo on the other side of the lake.

In fact her drawings are so reliable that her work has appeared in leading wildlife publications, and she also regularly contributes illustrations to field guides and gardening books. The illustrated has carefully thought about details; shadowing on the pond, the colours on the mountains and different shades for the grass and trees. She had a particular interest in natural history, and focused on illustrating animals in their natural environments.In PW 's words, ``The pandemonium caused by Rachel's `tiny little blister' is a joy to hear--and behold. My mother had to read it to me several times a day, until I knew all the words by heart (and she did, too). Ideal for reading aloud at the beginning of the school year of during camp sessions, when there's a little bit of Little Beaver in every kid. Well, it just so happens that the pond we were visiting had beavers on it: I knew that because when I was little I used to get in my boat at dusk and go out and watch them building their dams at the mouth of the pond. Little Beaver and the Echo is a lovely picture book by the American children’s author, Amy MacDonald.

Continuing to read to your child, even when they’re able to read, will give you both a chance to talk about more complicated books and continue the beautiful relationship you started together 5 years ago. As Raising Readers celebrates 20 years of giving books to Maine Kids, this book celebrates 30 years of inviting readers to paddle across the pond with Little Beaver. The irrepressible Fister family (Rachel Fister's Blister) is back, this time in high dudgeon over a younger clan member's missing tooth. She works in watercolour, using a muted palette, to create the detail of her winsome furry, feather and scaly animals in the foreground, set against the more impressionistic, softly glowing landscapes in the distance.The book is about Little Beaver, at the beginning he has no friends and is stuck on a side of a very big lake. He decides to shove off into the river to seek who it was, and links up with an otter, a turtle and two other rodent creatures, none of whom have made the cry, yet all promise friendship. Little Beaver lives by the edge of a big pond and one day he cries loudly only to hear a similar cry come from the other side of the pond. His investigations lead him to a duck, an otter, and a turtle but they all tell him that they are not responsible for the other voice. Turning 5 is a big deal, and you know what — you get to share your birthday with the Raising Readers program AND the State of Maine!

Along the way, he's joined by a duck, an otter and a turtle, who each claim, "I do need a friend, but it wasn't me who was crying.In this story by Maine author Amy MacDonald, Little Beaver jumps into his canoe hoping to find someone else who is lonely like him and looking for a friend. So Little Beaver got straight into his boat, and set off to find whoever it was, who was crying and lonely, just like Little Beaver felt. Shortlisted for the Children's Book Award, this is the much-loved story of Little Beaver, who lives all alone by the edge of a pond.
