Squirrels Leap, Squirrels Sleep by April Sayre - ADVISABLE

Sayre, April Pulley Squirrels Leap, Squirrels Sleep, illustrated by Steve Jenkins. PICTURE BOOK.  Henry Holt and Company (MacMillan), 2017.  $17.99.  Content:  G

Told in rhyme, this book is a great introduction to squirrels for young children.  Children will meet different squirrels, learn how they use different body parts and see what a typical day is like for them.  There is much more detailed, scientific information in the back that librarians and teachers can read and use with older students.  For preschool children this is a great book that can be used in a fall or squirrel-themed story time or unit of study.  

Pre-K, EL (K-3) –ADVISABLE.  Reviewer:  Nancy W.
