The Book

Three adorable little squirrel siblings are excited because spring has finally arrived.  Off they scoot to  observe and enjoy the new season.  They discover a caterpillar eating leaves and bees sucking nectar from cherry blossoms.  They encounter a baby bird that is alone and hungry.  What food can they offer to appease that wee one's hunger?  

Mick, Mack, and Molly are adorable, concerned and caring little squirrels.  When the baby bird's mommy swoops in she brings with her the perfect food for her baby.  The trio are surprised to learn what little birds eat.  They then head home to share their spring adventure with their parents.

This delightful book celebrates the season of spring and all the new exciting things that transpire when it arrives.  The illustrations are gentle and soft and the colour pallet is perfect.  This book is wonderful for beginning readers to enjoy all on their own.  I love the book and highly recommend it.
