Five Busy Beavers
Five busy beavers building up a dam, closing up the river where the salmon swam. Gnawing down trees and ferrying the logs. Slapping on the mud that they gathered from the bog. Along came a muskrat who wanted to play, and one little beaver swam away.
So begins the lively story of five little beavers working diligently on their dam until – one after another – their woodland pals lure them off to play. After visits from a muskrat, a heron, a frog and a turtle, there’s just one overachiever beaver left laboring away. But when that last weary (but not angry) little beaver heads home to the lodge, a happy surprise awaits that makes all the hard work worthwhile. With playful rhyme and whimsical illustrations, Five Busy Beavers teaches kids the rewards of sinking their teeth into the job.
