A STORY OF THE MEANING OF FRIENDSHIP
We do hear that opposites attract, but Nutmeg and Barley aren't at all sure about that. Nutmeg is one of the most chattering squirrels you'll ever see. A favorite pastime for Nutmeg is visiting with friends while perched in the branches of a tree. Barley is a quiet little mouse, a neighbor of Nutmeg's, who makes it obvious that he'd rather be alone. Solitaire is his game, and working in his garden his pleasure. Despite several invitations from Nutmeg he insists that he's either too busy or has something very important to do. Nutmeg decided to give up on him, thinking that they had absolutely nothing in common. However, when Nutmeg didn't see Barley for a day or two she became worried about him. When she went to his house she found him in bed, very ill. Well, the never-met-a-stranger squirrel turned into Florence Nightingale and nursed Barley back to health. When young readers find out what happens next they'll learn what a little kindness can do. Exuberant watercolor illustrations help to tell this story of the meaning of friendship. - Gail CookeWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
