Straightaway Little Beaver asks how he can find this Echo creature, so that they can be friends, because the Echo doesn’t have any, and neither does Little Beaver. Another picture book I have reviewed, which is illustrated by her, is “Snow Bears” by Martin Waddell. My mother had to read it to me several times a day, until I knew all the words by heart (and she did, too). She works in watercolour, using a muted palette, to create the detail of her winsome furry, feather and scaly animals in the foreground, set against the more impressionistic, softly glowing landscapes in the distance.

In PW 's words, ``The pandemonium caused by Rachel's `tiny little blister' is a joy to hear--and behold.During this time Little Beaver realises that all the animals he meets on his trip are his friends and the Echo is happy for all of them. Sarah Fox-Davies has the rare talent of making her illustrations cute and adorable, whilst retaining their accuracy. I feel that this book would be best read aloud; allowing the children to listen and study the images without having to focus on anything else.

Talk to your child about who is their friend at nursery, what do they like to do with their friends? While Little Beaver does not find who he expects, readers are treated to the beauty of a Maine pond and the appearance of the his friends Duck, Otter, and Turtle.Shortlisted for the Children’s Book Award, this is the much-loved story of Little Beaver, who lives all alone by the edge of a pond. No missing or damaged pages, no creases or tears, no underlining or highlighting of text, and no writing in the margins. She had a particular interest in natural history, and focused on illustrating animals in their natural environments. Little Beaver paddles around the lake, meeting different animals along the way, and eventually an older beaver that explains a little about the Echo on the other side of the lake. But one day, when he starts to cry, he hears someone else crying too, on the other side of the pond.

The first pages of the book, Little Beaver is sad and alone on the side of the pond; the illustration shows how small Little Beaver is and how big the pond is, it also looks as if beaver is hanging his head as if one would when they are sad.Along the way, he's joined by a duck, an otter and a turtle, who each claim, ``I do need a friend, but it wasn't me who was crying. She has contributed illustrations to a number of field guides and gardening books, as well as being the illustrator of the bestselling picture books, Little Beaver and the Echo, written by Amy Macdonald, and Snow Bears, written by Martin Waddell. One day when my son, Alexander, was about 18 months old, I took him to visit a pond in New Hampshire where I had spent my childhood summers.

Little Beaver and the Echo is a lovely picture book by the American children’s author, Amy MacDonald. Great-Aunt Matilda, Simon's guardian from No More Nice, is back in No More Nasty by Amy MacDonald, illus. Children in early years foundation stage would enjoy looking at the beautiful water colour illustrations and could relate to the story as it is read to them, and confident readers in upper key stage one could enjoy this independantly.

A touching, beautifully illustrated children's tale * Western Morning News * Gets the mixture, for child and adult, exactly right and is a story of enormous charm. It's only when Little Beaver turns to a wise old beaver for advice, that he learns that he will never find The Echo that was crying at the other side of the pond, but that in his quest to find The Echo, he did indeed find friendship.
