If you are a fan of the Ice Age movies then you know and love the prehistoric squirrel named Scrat. He was the saber-toothed squirrel who was obsessed with chasing down that darn acorn no matter how dangerous it was.
Aw, Nuts! By Rob McClurkan is the story of a modernized squirrel that will stop at nothing to find the perfect acorn. He packs his tree so tight with acorns that, KABOOM, it explodes and acorns scatter everywhere. So begins his adventure as he chases the bouncing acorns all through town.
You will laugh out loud as you turn the pages of this cleverly written and colorfully illustrated book. Each page makes you more and more eager to find out what could possibly happen next.
This is a great story for children who need a lesson in determination because this squirrel won’t rest until he has all the acorns back. Children will want to read this one over and over and feel free to do so. Remember they learn repetition and this one is worth repeating.
