Offering a child's perspective of the natural world through the lens of a youth photographer, this story follows Buddy the beaver around his pond. As Buddy’s experiences unfold, his friends are introduced—Norman the bald eagle, Peeps the peeper frog, and Cards the cardinal—and each animal’s relationship to the environment is explained. With vibrant photography and informative text, the pond and its inhabitants come to life.


“Ever wonder what happens to your favorite animals during those long, cold months of winter? This book answers that question. For all ages with fine photos from Carson and his dad to match, this story takes us to the pond side to sit, think, and wonder.” —Joel Sartore, National Geographic Magazine
