Unwrapping Some Illustrations for 


The Book

Poor Beaver, he isn't feeling well at all.  He is sneezing, coughing and his nose is constantly running.  His head is hot and he needs his bed.  He feels he has a virus that others may contract so he decides to decline any visitors that may come to his aid.  He refuses to open the door to them, not because he is rude,  but for their own safety and well-being.  His neighbours do drop by to see if he is alright but alas they are turned away because Beaver wants to protect them in case his illness may harm them too. 

The illustrations are lovely and greatly enrich the textual message.  The message highlights the importance of protecting your friends from getting sick while practicing self-care on yourself until you are feeling better again.  The book emphasizes examples of being a good neighbour, their acts of kindness, and keeping each other safe.  I highly recommend "Beaver Doesn't Open the Door."
