What a wonderful book to introduce year round pond life and the mammals that live there!! We loved the map of the pond to help us see where each chapter is taking place. It was such a fun way to learn!

This was a great book. We enjoyed how it followed the animal families throughout the seasons. It was interesting to find out at the end that it was based on the author’s own pond.

This book goes with the Mammals unit. We loved this book. It tells about several different animals that live in a small pond and how each of them live and take care of their families. It has great illustrations and it’s very informative.

Life at the beaver pond is never dull or boring. The ebb and flow of work and play keeps all the little animals there busy throughout the year. With an entertaining storybook style, Mammals of Small Pond offers an insightful look at the day-to-day lives of minks, raccoons, otters, beavers, and muskrats. Follow along as they build homes, find food, teach their little ones, and have a bit of fun as well.
