Squirrel Rescue by Jennifer Keats Curtis


Squirrel Rescue by Jennifer Keats Curtis

A baby squirrel that has fallen out of his nest suddenly interrupts a spring game of catch. Knowing what to do, the two boys demonstrate how to handle the furry mammal properly and what to do when they find the squirrel's sibling. Placing them safely in a box, the two boys retreat to the house so as not to scare the mother away while she recovers her babies. Once again, Jennifer Keats Curtis combines an exciting animal encounter with an ordinary childhood event to create a fascinating, realistic story about wildlife rescue. Laura Jacques' extraordinary illustrations perfectly capture the thrill and excitement of the boys and the animals. Middle gradesages 8-12.
