A Read-Aloud with Amy MacDonald: Little Beaver and the Echo

| Reading Aloud, Children's Books, 20th Anniversary

We’re so lucky to say that so many talented authors and illustrators call Maine home. Each and every year, we do our best to make sure every 5-year-old in the state receives their very own book by a Maine author or illustrator. This year, many Maine 5-year olds will be receiving Little Beaver and the Echo by Amy MacDonald at their well-child visit in celebration of Raising Readers’ 20th anniversary year.

Here is a read-aloud of Little Beaver and the Echo, read by Amy herself.

In the weeks to come, we’ll be posting read-alouds like this one, featuring some of our favorite Raising Readers’ books!

Enjoy the story!
