Summary
With its distinctive collage art style, this book follows squirrels and their daily activities: climbing, storing seeds, making homes in tree holes--maybe even flying! Discover squirrels of different kinds and colors as they scamper, eat, and--finally--sleep.Gorgeous illustrations and a lyrical text are combined in another winning title from this star-studded author-illustrator pair.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Squirrels red, gray, flying! Collaborators Sayre and Jenkins (including Woodpecker Wham!, 2015) present these familiar animals acting in ways children might have seen out their living room windows. The frenetic activities that mark squirrel behavior roll into pithy observations of how they use their parts (Nose for sniffing. / Jaws to chew), how they gather food, and the way they make nests. Each spread features four lines of text, with plenty of action words, illustrated by Jenkins' cut-and-torn-paper collages, which have plenty of movement of their own. Alternating big, bushy-tailed squirrels with smaller portraits that accent close-ups of behavior, the squirrels often look their observers right in the eye, just as in real life. Jenkins has taken a few liberties with squirrel colors (purple?), and in one line, Sayre asks, Can you guess what squirrels think? These embellishments add a fanciful touch to a fact-filled book. The very informative afterword fills out the details of squirrel behavior and supplies plenty of information about how trees help squirrels and vice versa.--Cooper, Ilene Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "The team behind Woodpecker Wham!, Eat Like a Bear, and other animal-centric books returns to study the ubiquitous, always-on-the-move squirrel. Both contributors are at the top of their game, capturing the habits, characteristics, and energy of squirrels in meticulous rhymes ("Meet the squirrels./ Gray. Fox. Red./ Flying squirrel/ overhead") and equally precise paper collages. Brushy, textured papers readily evoke the squirrels' soft fur, their grassy environs, and animals they coexist with; a beaver with matted fur hogs the foreground of one scene, while a bird of prey soars menacingly in another: "Paws for climbing./ Paws to pick./ Paws for cleaning./ Paws run. Quick!" In addition to paws, Sayre touches on how squirrels use their tails and other body parts, the gathering and storing of acorns, and behaviors many readers will have witnessed, such as rapid chases around tree trunks. A closing section thoroughly explores details about squirrels alluded to in the verse, and a closing image of a squirrel curled up in a nest might just help calm children who are feeling a bit squirrelly themselves.
