Nuts to You

Nuts to YouWritten by Lynne Rae Perkins

I’ll never look at a squirrel the same way again. And when I do, I hope I have a peanut butter sandwich handy. ;)

Nuts to You
is such a fun story. I was completely enchanted by all the squirrels, each with their own personalities and idiosyncrasies. I am not a lover of animal stories, but it only took me a bit to really be charmed by Jed, TsTs, and Chai and their story of friendship, adventure, and community. Plus, when a book can make you laugh out loud more than once – it’s a keeper! This would be a fun read a-loud for 1st to 3rd graders (maybe even older).

Squirrel humor: What’s brown and sticky? A stick!
