Megan Recommends – Little Beaver and The Echo

Book Recommendation of the Week –

Little Beaver and the Echo by Amy MacDonald and Sarah Fox-Davies

This is about a beaver who is crying and lonely without a friend.  After hearing his own echo and assuming that someone across the pond is as lonely as he is,  he decides to go on a quest to find a friend and ends up finding friends along the way.   It will be important for your children to recognize some of the good things that can happen when a family member is away that wouldn’t have happened if your lives hadn’t gone down certain paths, to recognize that other people feel lonely too and that everyone cries as it is a natural part of being human (and a beaver-like too).
