Book - For Children - "The Busy Little Squirrel" by Nancy Tafuri
The air was getting cold. It was time for Squirrel to get ready for winter. As Squirrel dashes around the farm and meadow, his animal friends invite him to join their games. The answer to each invitation is the same: "Squirrel couldn't....he was so busy!"
The ink and watercolor pictures show squirrel's flurry of activity, as he collects berries and nuts, and prepares his nest for winter. At last, an owl family invites Squirrel to admire the moon, but Squirrel can't....he's fast asleep. Ages 2-8
