The Upshawstars enjoyed the book The Busy Beaver because it uses animals to tell the details in the story. We liked that the story had a happy ending and that Beaver was able to fix his mistakes by apologizing to his friends. We've talked a lot about taking healthy risks and liked that Beaver was willing to try something new.

Heard so much about the book and think it's great, but I can't wait to read it! WHEN CAN I READ IT?!?!?!

I really think the title of this story fit the book perfectly. Beaver does live a busy life! I'm happy that Beaver took responsibility for the mess he made. I think he would make a great friend! What do you think?

We like this book because it has real photographs of real animals that are friends. We like the animals in the book because we think it is unusual for them to be friends because Kate is a pet dog and Pippin is a wild deer. Pippin knows she is a wild animal because she still goes to the forest every night to sleep. But she still loves Kate because she comes back every morning to play with Kate.
