I teach a preschool class of 4 year olds, and they love this book! They love me to read it to them, then they always want to manipulate the squirrel through the various pages as it looks for its hidden nuts. The story is easy to follow, with colorful pictures. It is always a favorite every year in my class. The kids have just about worn out our school's copy! I would highly recommend it for any preschool child.

This book can entertain children(adults too!)
of all ages, but is best suited for the pre-schooler. A removable suirrel who has a slot on every page to slip through goes on a journey to find his nuts, asking all the animals in the forrest along the way. He even gets tangled in a spiders web. It encourages fine motor skills and will make even the most active preschooler sit still. A must for every home with a child under 5!!! Once it is read the same thing is always said, "Let's do it again!"

In this story a squirrel can't remember where he has stored his nuts and sets off to find them. Your 3 or 4 year old child will have lots of fun pushing the squirrel (located in a see-through pouch on the cover) through a slot on each page as the search unfolds. The dialogue in the story seems weak to me, but the novelty of pushing that squirrel through that slot seems to make up for it -- at least for my kids. This is a nice book to give as a gift as it is rather unique and not likely to be something that the recipient will already have.

It is fun to move the squirrel across the pages and through the holes, but 2-3 year olds will require assistance to make sure the book does not rip. The pages are a heavy cardstock quality page, but not made for rough treatment. This is sweet story about a squirrel looking for his nuts; however, its up to you on whether or not you mention the woodsman who is trying to temp the squirrel with chocolate so that he may make some squirrel soup. All in all a good collection for a 2-5 year olds library.

I originally received this book as a gift for my preschool classroom. I had no idea what a hit it would be with the kids!!! The book actually comes with a little flat paper squirrel that you can move through each page. They just love it! I've had it for about 5 years and it's finally worn out, so I ordered a new one to put out for the kids and one to keep in the closet for when THAT one wears out! This book is so much fun!

I got this book because my then two-year-old had delayed fine motor skills. I had no idea how much she was going to love it. We've taken it everywhere and she tells the story of the squirrel as she tracks him through the book over and over again. The squirrel is looking a bit worn but has held up remarkably well. EXCELLENT!

I used to read this to my children, and now it goes along with me on trips to the grandchildren. Good for 2 to 6 year olds. Little slots may tear with rambunctious toddler hands. Nice to have a pattern to make a spare squirrel. Try also There's a Mouse About The House.

My kiddos just love to take part in reading books. And this book has a squirrel that you thread through each page slot to the next page and adventure. A Mouse about the house is another book buy this author that they like the best
