First of all I really enjoyed the great illustrations in this book. They were so bright and great for kids. The language play in this book was also great. This book had a lot of rhyme and has a great repetition that kids could easily get into. I think that this would be a great book to create activities to go along with.

Aw, adorable.

This is one of those rare book + CDs where the book is great on its own and you don't need the CD to sell it. Additionally delightful: the song is AWESOME!

Tale of 47 beavers who use their God given gifts to overcome challenge and adversity. Rhyming seems a bit forced, rhythm is clunky. Includes cd: Vischer reads the story and breaks into song. (Issues with rhyme and rhythm are nonexistent with his reading.) Illustratrations are bright and cheerful.

By the same silly guy who brought us Veggietales, this is about a group of crafty beavers and their grand adventure. So funny, so cute, and the CD will have even the grumpiest adult smiling brightly. If you have kids, or are a kid at heart, you MUST own this book.

Researching the structure of children's books for an upcoming project. This story is rhyme-based, and I love its absurdity. The author has done voice work for 'Veggie Tales.'

Well done, beavers. You know what they say, "It's no fun bitin' dinner if your dinner's bitin' you."
