Sample excerpt from reader:

“This is a river. Many animals and plants live in and near the river. The beaver is one of the animals that is at home in the river. Where do beavers live? Do they live in the water or on the land? Let’s learn more about the beaver and watch them work. Perhaps we will find some answers. Beavers are builders. They build using mud, logs and sticks.” (Pages 1-2) This text is 2nd grade level. If using with first graders (depending on their ability), you may need to use as a read aloud to students.
