Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A squirrel's increasingly intrepid explorations--around the birdfeeder, up to the window box and into the apartment through a tear in the screen--are the springboard for cut-paper collages as striking as any in Ehlert's considerable portfolio. But instead of employing the stark blocks of color predominant in her previous works, here she adds washes that produce gorgeous variegations in shades on many elements: the squirrel's coat, a gray that is alive with hints of brown, copper and even green; vibrant petunias that seem almost tie-dyed; dandelions whose yellow faces all but burst from the page. Various plants and birds are pictured and labeled along the way, and a glossary of "Squirrel Talk" provides ample information about the creature and its habits. A work of extraordinary visual splendor with an effectively simple, active plot, the book is marred only by the somewhat humdrum verse used to tell the story--in this case an easily forgiven shortcoming. Ages 4-8.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2-- A city squirrel peeks out from his tree hole, inviting young listeners and beginning readers to a romp through a world of bold color, texture, and rhyme. This crafty creature digs in window pots overflowing with vivid blossoms and vegetables, does gymnastics to steal seeds from the birds, and begs for a treat at an apartment window. The rascal even sneaks inside for a look around and is quickly lured away by the narrator's offering of "nuts to you." Working with large stylized forms, Ehlert uses collage and watercolor staining techniques to define textures of earthy bark, brick, and fur. Contrasting bright hues of sky, vegetation, and birds add to the visual excitement. The simple, spirited plot, lively verse, and stunning double-page spreads will make Nuts to You! a story-time standard. And since the last four pages include information about a squirrel's body, home, and food, it can also be used in integrated language arts/science units. Another beauty from Ehlert. --Linda Wicher, Highland Park Public Library, IL

This book is great. It tells the story of a boy who has a squirrel come into his room through a hole in a window screen. The story isn't too wordy, and you can get extra info on plants and animals throughout the story in smaller print. The book is funny also, which parents and children should enjoy. Wonderful illustrations.

I got this book for my daughter at a public library when we were temporarily living in Greenbelt, MD--a total squirrel haven. She was just about 20 months old and was fascinated by all the squirrels running around during the spring and early summer. This book was perfect to talk about squirrels and their environment. Although, gotta say, it's not so great to have your toddler going around shouting, "Nuts to you!" to strangers.

I bought this book as a replacement for the one my " Angel" granddaughter loved to pieces.
She loved the story so much that she accidentally tore the page . I never return a library books damaged. I believe it's selfish. So I bought this one to replace it.
I liked the story well enough she loved the pictures.
However if she hadn't torn the pages I wouldn't have bought it for her personal library.

For some reason this book was hard to find and it is such a cute book. The pages a cut into various shapes to enhance the story. It's all about the antics of a mischievous squirrel and how a young child gets him out of the house. Highly recommended.

We bought this for our 2 year old grandson. He loves books and this was was an instant hit! The hand-puppet aspect makes it interactive. Cool book.
