Children who love watching squirrels will enjoy reading Nuts to You! by Lois Ehlert. Illustrated with her signature paper art creations, this story follows the antics of the squirrel outside her window.
The squirrel begs for treats, messes up the window box, and even sneaks into her house! How will she get the squirrel out of her house? I’ll leave you to read the book to answer that question.
One thing I love about Lois Ehlert’s books is her realistic creations. Her plants look like real plants, and she identifies them for those interested in knowing their names. At the end of the book, Ehlert includes lots of facts about the plants and animals in her books for those scientifically-minded preschoolers who love the details.
Recommended for ages 2 years to 6 years.
