Book Review: The Squirrels Who Squabbled by Rachel Bright, Illustrated by Jim Field

Themes: Friendship, teamwork

Age: 3-5 years old

Summary: This book is about one squirrel who lives for the present, and another who has worked hard to store nuts for winter. When each notice the last acorn, they both fight to have it. In a hilarious tale, we watch the squirrels squabble over the acorn, taking the reader on a wild ride through the forest, which ends with a ride over a waterfall and…….without the acorn. In the end, the squirrels laugh at themselves and decide that from this day on, they’ll gather food together and share.

It’s a great story to share with children because it teaches them that arguing and fighting isn’t the way to behave. Through funny illustrations, it also shows children that sharing and friendship what’s most important.
