Busy beaver starts his day by being careless. Everywhere he goes, he leaves a mess without thinking about the consequences of his actions. This behavior not only impacts his world, but others as well. One day, beaver is so busy chewing trees that he failed to notice one falling in his direction! Arrgh! Beaver wakes up in the hospital with a bent tail, two broken limbs, three cracked ribs, and much more! Now beaver has plenty of time to think about his actions. He notices his leaky dam, the mess of trees he left half-chewed, his friends' bandages, and the homeless bird family. What has he done?
Beaver decides to get to work! Get to work learning the importance of taking care of others and our world! Now with the forest back in order, everyone was happier.
The lesson I really love in this book is "thinking before you act." Being "green" really does mean thinking before we act. if we all thought a little about the gift of nature before we acted, we could make a difference. We could all be a little "greener." Happy St. Patrick's Day!
