After finding Ward's old drawing tablet, Beaver volunteers to make a poster for a class project on Colonial America, hoping that his talented dad will do it for him. But Ward only offers his son advice and encouragement and, even though his friends make fun of his art, in the end, Beaver is glad that he painted the poster by himself.- Written by shepherd1138
Beaver finds his father's old sketch book. Thinking the drawings are good and learning that Ward at one time aspired to be a commercial artist, Beaver, who had no idea of his father's talent in this area, wants somehow to be able to capitalize on it. He thinks he's found what that venture will be when Miss Landers suggests a class project on the colonial era. Beaver is one of three volunteers each who will draw a poster for the project. The best poster will win a prize. Beaver, who is no artist in his own right, wants his father to draw the poster for him. While Ward offers to provide Beaver with guidance, he refuses to do Beaver's homework for him, telling him he will get much more satisfaction out of the accomplishment of doing it on his own. Beaver takes his father's words to heart, and refuses to let anyone with a helpful artist's hand touch his poster, despite how badly the poster turns out without that help. There is a surprising reaction to Beaver's poster compared to that of the other two.- Written by Huggo
