The Busy Little Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri

Tafuri, Nancy, The Busy Little Squirrel. Little Simon, 2007 $7.99 Content G-BOARD BOOK. Squirrel is getting ready for winter by gathering and storing food. He disappoints his friends, bird, cat, frog and mouse because he can’t stay and visit with them.  I liked the repetitious nature of the story and it will help the little ones with prediction. The pictures have enough detail to keep an older child’s attention, but not so much detail that it is distracting to pre-readers.  ADVISABLE for HOME/FAMILY PRE-K, EARLY READER. Shauna, reading teacher.

I have been working on a story about a squirrel. I love this - and it is so true how busy they are getting ready for winter. Thanks.
