Synopsis: Davy and Eddie are the best of friends until Eddie's dam breaks and Davy's boat washes away. After some time spent alone, Eddie and Davy soon learn to appreciate the friendship they had shared, and they learn the value of teamwork as they attempt to build a new dam and a new boat.

Discussion topics: To be posted soon ...

Craft ideas:
•  Build a toy boat, and give it the name of your best friend.
•  Make bunny ears, and re-enact the story.
•  Make a poster of you and your best friend doing something together.

*Note: These craft ideas are just suggestions. You can use them, but you don’t have to use them. You can expand upon them, or add your own twist. Remember, though, that the focus of your time should not be on the development and execution of a craft; the focus should be on the read-aloud and the enjoyment of the book!
