Deskripsi

The busy but careless beaver spends his days following random impulses, rarely thinking things through and leaving in his wake a devastated forest filled with stumps, half-nibbled trees and injured, homeless animals. But then one day the beaver finds himself on the wrong side of a falling tree, which as it turns out, is just the thing to knock some sense into him. After reflecting on his behavior, he decides to make some changes. Soon, the now wiser and gentler beaver is getting down to the business of making things right, much to the delighted surprise of his forest friends. This charming story from the creator of Big Bear Hug and Making the Moose Out of Life gently teaches youngsters how to take care with others, as well as the world around us.

    It's another hilarious picture-book from Canadian children's author/artist Nicholas Oldland, whose debut venture in the field, Big Bear Hug, had me in stitches - and the results do not disappoint! Taking up the story of Beaver, the castorine friend of Big Bear, and of Moose (the star of Oldland's Making the Moose Out of Life), this endearing picture-book follows it titular hero as he wreaks havoc amongst his companions and neighbors, not through malice, but through carelessness. Busy, but heedless, Beaver causes any number of accidents, until he himself is the victim of his own thoughtlessness. Can he reform himself? Will those he has harmed accept his apologies...?Like its two predecessors, The Busy Beaver is an amusing book, and I got a good chuckle out of many of the scenes, particularly the one in which Beaver returns from the hospital, and Bear (along with all the other creatures) takes to his heels, screaming: "Run for your lives!" Oldland has a distinctively droll sense of humor, that comes across very well, both in his simple text and his expressive (but simple) artwork. I appreciated this one, however, not just as an amusing tale, but as a sensitive, non-didactic look at a number of important issues: being mindful in the way one lives, recognizing the mistakes one has made, and seeking to make restitution for the harm one has done. Well done, Nicholas Oldland - this was an entertaining and thoughtful little picture-book adventure!

    Lovely story about learning to consider all things around you. Planning and safety are not something Beaver pays attention to until he has to.Great selection for all ages of the Blue Spruce audience
