Today is Squirrel Appreciation Day!

No kidding - Jan. 21 is National Squirrel Appreciation Day! In honor of our furry friends, take a look at some of my favorite books about squirrels! But first, a joke: How do you catch a squirrel? Climb a tree and act like a nut!

The Scaredy Squirrel series of picture books by Melanie Watt are hilarious! The titles are:
Scaredy Squirrel
Scaredy Squirrel Makes A Friend
Scaredy Squirrel at the Beach
Scaredy Squirrel at Night

Acorns Everywhere by Kevin Sherry is about a very forgetful squirrel.

The Busy Little Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri is about, well, a very busy squirrel!

In Earl the Squirrel by Don Freeman, Earl learns to gather acorns on his own.

Squirrels by Peter Murray introduces readers to different species of squirrels and discusses their behavior, diet, and relationship with people.
