Five-year-olds know what it feels like to be a little bit lonely. In this story by Maine author Amy MacDonald, Little Beaver jumps into his canoe hoping to find someone else who is lonely like him and looking for a friend. While Little Beaver does not find who he expects, readers are treated to the beauty of a Maine pond and the appearance of the his friends Duck, Otter, and Turtle. As Raising Readers celebrates 20 years of giving books to Maine Kids, this book celebrates 30 years of inviting readers to paddle across the pond with Little Beaver. What better way to celebrate these two anniversaries than with our five-year-old friends.
