The Lovereading4Kids comment
With fluid, engaging line and watercolour illustrations, Gillian McClure’ s story simple but dramatic story captures the spontaneity of two small boys working and playing together on the beach. And in the visual narrative readers can enjoy following the antics of the dog.
We're Going to Build a Dam by Gillian McClure
We’re going to dam a stream, hold its water back.’
Two boys and a dog find a place where the streams meet the sea. Can they build a dam to hold back the water? There are stones and driftwood and seaweed – is it enough to stop the stream. What is the dog up to?
‘A hymn to the joy of “messing about” on the beach – two small boys and their imaginations create a simple but dramatic story’ Jane Ray
