Camilla and the Big Change

Illustrated by Laura Wood, published by Magination Press

When beavers arrive in Camilla's forest in the spring, trees come down as they start planning a dam. Camilla does NOT want a pond -- it’s too much change. But when her map-making skills can help with the pond construction, Camilla slowly gets used to the idea that change can be good.

Includes a note in the back with info and activities. Ask for it at your local bookstore, or find it at the Magination Press website.

Learn more about spatial thinking and the importance of kids drawing maps in the Note at the back of the book. Includes several activities to do at home or in the classroom, and printable Activity Pages.
