Review

In this poetic book, Ferry shows how a squirrel benefits from acorns by burying them for the winter as well as how the environment benefits from the squirrel burying acorns for the winter and forgetting where she hid them. Paired with Kang’s beautiful illustrations, Ferry’s story of symbiotic relationships is made accessible to children who no doubt have seen a squirrel scampering by to bury or eat acorns on a fall day. Both the life cycle of the squirrel and the oak tree is shown, which makes the book not only fun to read, but also useful in teaching children about how nature is self-sustaining. The book concludes with “nutty facts” that parents or teachers can read to their children to learn more about symbiotic relationships. Highly Recommended Ashley Riddle, Centennial Library Intern, Cedarville University
