I found the tale of Eufrazie, the squirrel hairdresser, particularly amusing. Margot enlightens us with photos of the hairdos Eufrazie creates for all the animals who are cheering for the Canadian women in the World Hockey Game. I won't reveal the winner, but as the sisters get ready to depart for Belgium, they are already looking forward to more adventures with Margot and her animal friends next year.
This beautiful book can be used as an introduction to nature for younger children. There is quite a bit of interesting information about the wildlife of Quebec. As such, the book is a good beginning reader that will sustain interest due to the nice blend of fiction and nonfiction. Children can easily empathize with Margot and her wildlife friends. I would particularly recommend it for children in the six to nine age bracket.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who loves learning about nature.
The Bodacious Bookworm
This book not only tells the delightful narrative of an unlikely friendship, but children reading this picture book will learn about groundhogs and its distant relatives. I discovered that ground hogs are marmots and solitary animals, who love eating and sunbathing, also called woodchucks and are distant relatives to squirrels. I learned so much about rodents than I had ever anticipated. I recommend this book for 9-year-olds and older due to the length and breadth of this story. What I enjoyed most was the use of natural photography instead of cartoons or animated illustrations, which were beautifully captured by the author, Lieve Snellings. She is very talented in her ability to tell stories and use different graphics. The book is also filled with many life lessons. Children’s vocabulary will also increase as they learn the meaning of the words: inquisitive, creek, species, glance, and settlers. They will also be exposed to some geography as they learn about Canada, United States, and Belgium and learn about other cultures: the French and the Swiss. The story also goes into discussion of what she believes constitutes a family.
This book was given to me as a gift and I voluntarily reviewed it.
