Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Debby Willett
Evidence of fall was everywhere! Squirrel and his little brother were actively gathering nuts, berries, and pinecones. The squirrels played and ran with their circle games until they were woozy. Colorful leaves twisted around them as they chased each other into the forest. It was not long before Squirrel had lost sight of his brother, but he was more worried about his collection of nuts. Squirrel's tummy began to rubble with hunger at about the same time Mouse appeared with a sycamore seed. He asked Mouse if he had seen his brother. But, no, Mouse had not seen him. Mouse thought he should look in the field. The grass was long in the field; still Squirrel could not find his brother, or his food. It was then Rabbit appeared, and Squirrel asked the same question he had been wondering, "Have you seen my food?" Mouse thought Squirrel should look around the pond. Going there, Squirrel hunted around all the reeds and leaves. Still, his food was not there. Noticing from above, Owl asked Squirrel if that was his brother by the old apple tree, eating something yummy. The hunger in Squirrel's stomach got the best of him, hoping his brother was not his nuts. That was when Owl reminded him shared food always tasted better. This is an age appropriate book with colorful illustrations. The story is engaging for the recommended pre-K to grade 2 age group. The author included four creative ideas for parent and child to enjoy. In addition, four questions about the story are included reinforcing what the child has learned. Reviewer: Debby Willett

"Squirrel and his little brother were busy collecting pine cones, berries, and nuts.

Fall had arrived and food was everywhere.

Juicy blackberries speckled the thorny brambles.
Corn was being harvested in the cornfield"
