    2. A bear, a moose, and a beaver decide to go canoeing. Trouble is they all disagree about who is going to do what part of the canoeing. So they end up capsizing, going in circles, and doing everything else that they shouldn’t do. Eventually they figure out just what they need to do in order to move forward. But they forget to pay attention to where they are going. And often rivers where you canoe tend to have “wild white-water rapids.” All three friends have different strategies for dealing [...]

    3. I don’t care about books in a series, but this one is really good. The concept of teamwork is provided.The best part of this book is when the animals take a break from canoeing so they can relieve themselves.

    9. by Andrea Renee CoxThis book started off really cute and fun, with a great message about learning to get along well with others. Several pages in, I found a couple of words that were too advanced for the target audience. The most disturbing part, though, was a picture of the animals urinating in the woods. Their backs are turned, hands tucked in front; it's quite clear what they're doing. This was unnecessary and something I never would have expected to see in a child's storybook. I cannot recom [...]

    10. PreS-gr2This book just cracks me up. The illustrations are very funny - done with just a few touches that create humor. Bascially three friends try to canoe. And there are problems, since it takes a while for them to figure out how to work together, not against each other. I loved the illustration where the beaver has an oar in his mouth and says "I'm hungry." Slapstick and a good message that doesn't overwhelm. The trim size of the book is smaller, so it is less useful for storytime. However, I [...]

    11. I was visiting a teacher and noticed she had this book, one I recently bookmarked because of a review I’d read. It’s an amusing tale of a beaver, a moose and a bear who take off on an adventure in a red canoe. Through many mis-adventures, the three finally learn that it really is helpful to work together. I’d love to read and discuss this with a group of younger students. The illustrations are bright and simple, good to view with the sweet three animals in all their expressions of dismay, [...]

    12. "There once was a bear, a moose and a beaver who were the best of friends, though they often disagreed."A story about common elements of our baser nature, e.g if someone else wants it, I want it too; my idea is the best idea. Through a canoeing adventure the bear the moose and beaver learn to take turns, work together, and use their individual talents to reach a common goal. Oh-and the illustrations make all this character growth through mishap freaking hilarious. My four year old and I crack up [...]

    13. Bear, Moose, and Beaver are best friends, but even best friends can sometimes drive each other crazy.cially when they decide to go canoeing together. It's one wild ride, but eventually they figure out things are better when they each use their unique skills and work together.A fun book I picked up for the library while in the Canadian Rockies. Whether kids are familiar with these critters or canoeing, they should still get the gist of the wackiness of the critters' trip and the little lesson on [...]

    14. Oh how I identified with this story of three best friends trying to get along on their canoe trip. I may have been giggling far too loudly at the desk while I flipped through the page. Children and adults will enjoy this story because I think no matter how old you are, you know that your best friends are the ones you probably will end up arguing with the most. Great illustrations make this a really fun read.

    15. Working together isn't easy--even if it is with friends. A beaver, a moose, and a bear learn through trial and error that working together is the best way to survive. Illustrations stand out well against the primarily white background pages. This is a fun book with a defined plot and plenty of humor.

    16. My five-year-old son picked this book out from the library this week. It was the cover. This is a pretty funny story about teamwork. Or rather, it is a pretty funny story about a lack of teamwork. Not working together can lead to some pretty hilarious results. The illustrations are perfect for adding to the hilarity.

    17. My daughter received this book for her fourth birthday and we've read it almost every night since. My seven year old loves improvising all of the goofy sounds that the characters would make through the more treacherous parts of their journey. We're giggling through the entire story. It's just great, except for when the kids argue over who gets to do "eeny meeny miny moe" ;)

    18. This is an entertaining story in the Life in the Wild series by Nicholas Oldland. The story is short and humorous and the illustrations are colorful and cartoonish. We enjoyed reading this book together.

    19. This was a cute story about working together and compromising and could the characters be any more Canadian? Like, a bear, a moose, and a beaver are friends. Come on. Plus the illustrations were cute.

    20. Get ready for loads of laughter following this trio on a trip down the nearby waterway. Their inability to agree on nearly everything generates grins galore. You will think of this book the next you venture out in a canoe.My full review: bit/19k1nfC

    22. Another Nicholas Oldland book that I'm sure are written for adults. This one is about teamwork and rightly so, when the Beaver, Moose and Bear that star in his other books come together for a trip up (down really!) the creek!
