Read. So, SO many times-my son's favorite book lately. It's exactly what you would think about a book about beavers published in 1988 would be.
This book is mostly a vehicle for the large, high resolution National Geographic pictures of beavers. As such, the text is scarce, large, and obvious. The pictures are amazing, however, and I remember enjoying this book somewhat as a kid, though it wasn't my favourite of its kind. The "more about" page at the back of the book is excellent. If you are a fan nature's most suggestively-named rodent, you'll probably enjoy this book.
The pictures are excellent and the text gives simple introductions to beavers and how they live. Text is simple and easy to understand.
