|Offering a child's perspective of the natural world through the lens of a youth photographer, this story follows Buddy the beaver around his pond. As Buddy’s experiences unfold, his friends are introduced—Dawn the fawn, Cheeks the chipmunk, Larry the land snail, and Carrots the rabbit—and each animal’s relationship to the environment is explained. With vibrant photography and informative text, the beaver pond and its inhabitants come to life.
"Through the eyes and imagination of a young boy, Carson Clark has crafted a magical story about friendship, the joys of nature, and the importance of wetlands. I can't wait to read more adventures of Buddy the beaver . . . a job well done!" — Jeff Corwin, biologist and host, The Jeff Corwin Experience
"A young boy with a robust imagination has not only formed a friendship for life with Buddy the beaver, but, in doing so, has forged a powerful instructional partner through whom we all can learn about important environmental issues. I am doubly proud of this young author who has been a model student at Loudoun Country Day School since he enrolled in prekindergarten. Carson, you make our entire LCDS community proud." — Dr. Randy Hollister, PhD, Headmaster, Loudoun Country Day School, Leesburg, Virginia
"My six-year-old son, Spencer, and I read Buddy the Beaver last night at bedtime. At first he didn't want to look at 'another photography book' but as soon as we cracked the cover he was all over it. He loved it and wants to read it again tonight." Joel Sartore, National Geographic Photographer
"My Granddaughter had to have a copy of this book. When it arrived, she sat down and read it cover to cover. I couldn't even look at it until she was finished. It is a great book for younger readers, written by a young writer. I would recommend this book to any parent. It is a great example for younger people to learn from when building relationships and understanding how the animals spend their days. " B. Conroy
"I teach environmental education, and I purchased this book to share with my students. After buying my first copy, I was so impressed with the photographs and story that I bought more copies, for children and adults alike. The photographs dazzle the senses and strongly support the storyline of how animals spend their days. Entertaining and educational for all age groups. I anxiously await the sequel!" L Gleeson
