Aw, Nuts! By Rob McClurkan –ADVISABLE

McClurkan, Rob Aw, Nuts! 32 pgs. HarperCollins, 2014. $12.99 Content: Language: G (0 swears); Mature Content: G Violence: G. PICTURE BOOK
For a squirrel who loves acorns, a giant stash is never enough, because there is always another, better, acorn that he must obtain. Squirrel goes through some fun and silly adventures to catch a wily acorn and just when you think he is done……
I must say, that I am a bit jaded in recommending this book, since another squirrel book character, Scaredy Squirrel ,is my library assistant this year and I have been hiding acorns all over the library. This book is the perfect accompaniment. I like the underlying ‘grass is greener’ lesson for students. The illustrations are simple and bright, and the story is fun and silly.
