About the Book
Wonderful book. Bought one for my great niece and great nephew. They ask their grandma to read it everyday. They absolutely love it. Now they want a beagle.. Illustration is great, words are easy for children to read and understand. I'm going to buy another for a local daycare for more kids to enjoy.. Thank you for this wonderful book..
I enjoy reading this book to my grandchildren. The story about Ben's life around the farm gives them a look at life in the country. It is written and illustrated in a way that invites children to ask questions and to identify with the story. The children in your life will love meeting Ben and his friends.
Ben Beagle Plays is true delight! Donna Finch Slaton brings her skill as a story teller and children's librarian to create a rhyming story about a beagle named Ben. Farm animals, wildlife, birds, and scenery are presented in bold color by illustrator Donna Brooks. This teamwork shows clearly both artists' love of nature. Lots of educational information about what a Beagle hound is! The book comes with a coloring and activity book. I can see lots of classroom possibilities in this book.
