The Busy Little Squirrel

"The Busy Little Squirrel" by Nancy Tafuri

"Leaves were falling. The air was getting cold. It was time for Squirrel to get ready for winter. 'Squeak, squeak,' said Mouse. 'Will you nibble a pumpkin with us?'  But squirrel couldn't...He was so busy!"

Read about all of the animals who want to play with squirrel, but he had to turn them all down. He was storing up fruits and nuts for a long winter.

Nancy Tafuri's illustrations capture a childlike view of nature and all it's beauty. You can find a copy of this book in hard cover or board book
