Description

 

Join five little beavers and their playful friends in this countdown to fun!

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.

A catchy rhyme counts down from five until there is only one hardworking beaver left. The others disappeared one by one, called away to play by their animal friends —a muskrat, a heron, a frog and a turtle. When the fifth tired beaver finally heads back to the lodge he finds a big surprise!

The bouncy story is rounded out with a facts page at the back, along with information about each animal featured in the book.

Editorial Review

 

Praise for Over at the Rink:

“Kids don’t have to be hockey fans to enjoy the bouncing rhythm of this counting book (though it will be a bonus if they are). [A] fun primer on numbers, hockey and playing fair.” —Quill & Quire

“The rhythm of the text is natural and bouncy, the lines easy to read and the words demanding to be read aloud.” —Resource Links
