I would like to introduce you to my absolute favorite, definitely overlooked picture book. This one is from the 90s but I didn't know it when it came out—I found it at my first bookstore and I’ve loved it ever since.

Little Beaver is lonely. When he calls across the pond and hears his echo, he thinks it is his friend and goes on an adventure to find it. He picks up lots of new friends along the way, each of them looking for someone just like him. Filled to the brim with beautiful illustrations and happiness, this book is a joy.
