Gibbons, Gail. Beavers. New York: Holiday House. 2013.
ISBN: 9780823424122

This book is all about beavers, from what they eat to how they make their dams to how they are physically built.
The author's writing style is very insightful.  There is a lot of accurate and valuable information that is described in depth.
The illustrations are helpful for visualizing the beaver's life.  The colors are cohesive to nature and the drawings are unique in that they aren't perfect or ordinary.  They are different and portray the text especially well.
I would recommend this book to a teacher that is in need of a book to incorporate into a lesson on wetlands.  It's a good book for elementary aged students and potentially middle schoolers with the valuable information presented.
This book would appeal to 6-12 year olds.                                                 Reviewer: EmkAsh
