PreSchool-K—A young beaver climbs onto a narrow log and floats away from his family. He ends up lost in a vast city where he is chased by a dog, encounters a fake alligator in a swimming pool, passes through the Beaver Exhibit at the zoo, and swims across a lake. The animal emerges onto a crowded street where he follows a mouse down a long flight of stairs to a bay. He swims across the large expanse of water and reaches home late at night, where his family is waiting. This is basically a wordless story, told frame by frame in pictures. The watercolor and ink illustrations are mostly done in soft browns, beiges, and pastels. Youngsters should enjoy following Beaver's trek as he searches for home, perhaps telling the story in their own words.—Donna Atmur, Los Angeles Public Library
