Squirrels were the theme for our last September Storytime. We read The Busy Little Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri, about a squirrel who was so busy getting ready for fall that he didn't have time to do anything with his friends. In Ol' Mama Squirrel by David Ezra Stein, a mother squirrel is determined to protect her babies. Lastly, we read Nuts to You! by Lois Ehlert, about a squirrel who tries to get inside a house.
For our craft, we made a paper bag squirrel with googly eyes holding a corregated cardboard acorn. He looks like he's getting ready for winter!
