    A soft, poetic story about the relationship between squirrels and the growth of oak trees I loved the illustrations they made the story.

    Really a 4.5 as not my OMG FAVORITE book ever, but a really strong book The story about how a squirrel and oak tree depend on each other is sweet However, it will grow with your child as there are facts at the end of the book Good for classroom or one on one story time.

    I d give this one a 3.5 because it has plenty of appeal for young readers and interesting tidbits of information about squirrels and acorns in the back matter Although I wasn t a big fan of the rhyming text, I did enjoy how the book s title seems to imply that it will be about the offspring of the squirrel, and while, to some extent, that is true, it s also largely about the tree that provides a home and food for this species Created with colored pencil and then scanned digitally, the illustra I d give this one a 3.5 because it has plenty of appeal for young readers and interesting tidbits of information about squirrels and acorns in the back matter Although I wasn t a big fan of the rhyming text, I did enjoy how the book s title seems to imply that it will be about the offspring of the squirrel, and while, to some extent, that is true, it s also largely about the tree that provides a home and food for this species Created with colored pencil and then scanned digitally, the illustrations make readers feel as though they are right there in each scene with the squirrel as she s gathering food for now and later Just like when humans pick strawberries and blackberries andof them land in their mouths than in the bucket, this squirrel can t resist doing some munching as she looks for nuts While it s clear that squirrels rely on oak trees and the nuts they provide, trees also rely on squirrels to spread and plant their acorns It s pretty fascinating to think how many acorns go unfound during the winter months and now few only one in 10,000 become mature oak trees This title would be a good introduction to a natural science unit for youngsters

    I despise squirrels actually They overrun my bird feeders, dig up my plants in pots on my deck as well as my garden, snip my evergreen trees to make their nests and are sassy, brazen little rodents who run just out of reach and then turn around a stare defiantly at me and my dogs Grr This book was charming The rhymes mostly worked The extra information at the end was helpful and interesting.

  7. Catherine says:

    This beautiful book relates information about the life cycles of animals and plants and how they are interconnected The text rhymes, which is always a bonus to me The lovely illustrations help young listeners and readers better understand the text It fits very nicely into my curriculum for fall, how animals meet their needs, poetry, and life cycles I got it as a recent book fair and I am so glad I did.

  8. Lisa Nagel says:

    Excellent non fiction book with lyrical text and gorgeous illustrations Full of information presented simply as we watch the mutually beneficial relationship between squirrels and acorns brought to life through this story of a squirrel Wonderful additional nutty facts at the end Highly recommend.

  9. Arminzerella says:

    This picture book in verse follows a squirrel and her family s close relationship with the oak trees that serve as their homes and provide their food over the course of the changing seasons and years Appealing illustrations depict tree squirrels going about their lives Choosing to present the information in verse doesn t do this presentation any favors forced, feels interminable.

  10. Darlene says:

    This story is a perfect introduction for young children into the world of nature specifically the importance of squirrels to the growth of oak trees The rhyming structure and soft illustrations invite the reader into the outdoors and the life cycle of both tree and squirrel Perfect book to curl up with your favorite kiddo for a read aloud.
