Three Little Beavers by Jean Heilprin Diehl

Three Little Beavers introduces us to three siblings:  Bevan, "an expert with twigs and mud;" Beverly, "perfect (at) underwater somersaults;" and Beatrix, the one that doesn't quite do anything right.  One evening, Beatrix goes in search of her strength and thanks to a sticky situation, proves her worth.

Sylvan Dell Publishing is known for their motto, "Science and Math through Literature;" however, author Jean Heilprin Diehl takes the motto further to include a theme so important for a child's social-emotional intelligence.  Three Little Beavers highlights differences and the strengths found within them.  Combine this lesson with the fun facts about nature's architects, and you have a winner on multiple levels.

Can you name other books that touch on a multitude of lessons for children?

Thank you to Sylvan Dell Publishing for a review copy of Three Little Beavers by Jean Heilprin Diehl.  Be sure to also check out the additional online activities associated with this story.
