It’s summer in the city, and a rascally squirrel is up to all sorts of tricks. He digs and eats and zips and hides, but when he sneaks inside an apartment window, it’s time for a nutty solution to get him out. Labels identify plants, birds, and insects on each page, and a glossary at the back of the book offers factual details about squirrels. “The simple, spirited plot, lively verse, and stunning double-page spreads will makeNuts to You! a storytime standard.”--School Library Journal

Baker & Taylor

This book is just ok. Amazon lists this book as geared towards children 4 years of age and older…I totally disagree. The words and story are far too simplified for anyone over 3 years of age. (My 4-year old granddaughter, who loves most any book, was completely bored.) However, in my experience, the younger the child, the more colorful the illustrations need to be in order to keep their attention. This book certainly does not give young children the visual stimulation they desire. The illustrations are done in a collage style with each and every page being extremely dark. The full backgrounds of many of the pages are darkly colored bricks (which takes up most of the page). If your child is attracted to the front cover of the book, s/he may enjoy the book, but if not, the illustrations only get darker and more confused. As far as all the Amazon reviews praising the illustrations, I can only assume that they have been written by adults with an artist’s eye who truly would appreciate them, but I can’t imagine many small children finding them to be even the slight bit interesting. All in all, we were not impressed.
