Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

andlt;bandgt;The leaves have started to fall. The air is cold. Squirrel needs to get ready for winter. He cannot nibble with the mice. He does not have time to hop with the frogs or run with the dogs. But there is one thing he can do!andlt;/bandgt;

Review:

"'Tafuri (Have You Seen My Duckling?) is in classic form in her latest large-scale offering. As Squirrel hops and jumps through a pumpkin patch and around the nearby woods, his long, rangy body expertly scaling branches and the occasional bird feeder, friends invite him to pause for some fun. 'But Squirrel couldn't,' explains Tafuri. 'He was so busy!' Kids can chime in on six oldie-but-goodie animal sounds ('Squeak, squeak,' says Mouse, 'Will you nibble a pumpkin with us?') while they savor Tafuri's signature style: the precisely drawn, generously sized animal shapes, the delicate detailing that makes fur and feathers bristle with energy, and the softly variegated colors that evoke the magic of the season. A wonderful book to usher in autumn. Ages 2-5.' Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)" Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

Featuring simple text and distinctive illustrations by a Caldecott Honor artist, this book tells the story of a squirrel who tries to get everything done in time for the long winter. Full color.
