Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-Gr 2–On January first, Squirrel hears on the radio that it is a great day to make a resolution. Not knowing how to make one, she visits Bear, the librarian, who tells her that “a resolution is a promise you make to yourself to be better or to help others.” As Squirrel walks through the woods to think of a resolution, she meets other woodland friends who need help. She cheers up Skunk, who is sick in bed; helps Mole and Turtle find the perfect place to dig a garden; and teaches Porcupine some silly jokes so he can laugh more. At the Hidey Hole Diner, Squirrel is still stumped that she doesn't have a resolution until all of her friends tell how she helped them keep their promises and she learns that her actions speak for themselves. The simple dialogue and predictable plot make this a good read-aloud, and the brightly colored, acrylic cartoons are full of fun details and expression, giving the woodland creatures anthropomorphic characteristics. This introduction to the tradition of resolutions is a strong addition to holiday collections.Kristine M. Casper, Huntington Public Library, NY

From Booklist

Most holiday books are centered around Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, but here’s one that takes kids into the New Year. Squirrel doesn’t know what a resolution is—happily, Bear the librarian explains it quite well, both to her and to the book’s audience. Squirrel then visits her forest friends to see what resolutions they have planned and hopes she’ll be able to think of one for herself. Skunk, Turtle, and Mole all have ideas, but they can’t seem to get started until Squirrel gives them a push. She comes away disappointed that nothing’s come to her, but when she meets her friends later at the diner, they point out that her involvement has led to a resolution “to help someone every day.” The story line gets a little muddy as the resolutions become more interrelated, but the happy pictures and the (possibly new) knowledge that a resolution is an important, attainable goal carry the day. Perfect for those tired of pumpkins and Santa. Preschool-Grade 1. --Ilene Cooper
