Children's Book Review: A Special Place by Bruce Sinnott

A Special Place by Bruce Sinnott is a children's book from Dorrance Publishing Company about Eddie, a little beaver, who had a question that always bothered him, "Why do beavers build dams and make ponds?" He goes around asking other animals he lives by: Mother Duck, Mr. Trout, Mr. Frog, the Wise Owl and Mr. Turtle. Finally, he asks his dad, Joe Otter, and finds out a great answer!

I really love to read to my son, but I also love when my husband reads to him. I wanted to find a good book about dads and sons and I found one in this book! It was really cute and it shows to children that sometimes the best person to ask advice from his your parents. It had good lessons to learn from the little otter and his dad. The only thing I would have changed about the book is that it had more pictures and was a little more child friendly. There were only a few black and white pictures and they were hand drawn and were a little hard to recognize at times. Other than that, I loved the words and the message of this book. I highly recommend it, especially for dads to read to their sons!
