Synopsis

Storytime: Squirrel's Busy Day by Lucy Barnard

Squirrel is busy collecting acorns and doesn't have time to play with his friends. But when things go wrong, Squirrel needs some help. Will his friends come to the rescue? This beautifully illustrated book teaches children the true meaning of friendship. Sometimes, when life gets hard and busy, and we push people away, we realise that true friends will always be there for you no matter what.

Reviews

As if by magic my eldest child gravitated towards this book and declared it was her favourite of a set of books I had be sent to review. Together we wondered about why this book appealed to her- I like the squirrel!...he is busy like me and has lots of friends!

- whilst her friendship group is currently settled it has not always been this way. She often will think with me about friendships and how to let friends down gently when she wants to play with somebody new or on her own. Seeing her experience in print and with pictures has been invaluable and empowering for her and now this book sits on her bookshelf and I am sure it will be read for many years to come! -- Nina Ridsdale Books & Media Children will love identifying all the creatures scatterd throughout the book that are not main characters, and the story would be great fun to enact in the classroom. Books for Keeps 'Beautifully illustrated... Carries an important message.

'The beautiful illustrations include details that the young reader will love to point out and name. The book also supports counting to five and depicts six wonderful creatures in their habitat.'

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
