Storytime: Nuts to You!

السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Today we read Nuts to You! by Lois Ehlert

A very cute story (with a title that really caught my attention *smile*) about a little boy who spots a squirrel outside of his window. The little boy (who is never pictured so this is great to help children use their imagination) is confident that the squirrel wants to come inside and readers are taken along the squirrels trip as he (i.e. the squirrel) eventually....well, I won't ruin it for you...hehe.

The book is very simply worded and the rhyme is cute enough to catch the attention of very young toddlers. The story length is short which also makes it a great read aloud to babies, preschoolers and children all the way up to grade 2 insha'Allaah.

If you live in an area where squirrels are a part of your child's outside adventures, they might really enjoy this book....waallahu a'lam.
