As a child, I remember spending my summer hours reading, going to the library, and sitting outside reading some more. When school is out, I always expect that my children will have more time to read, as well. Instead, it seems that they are running around the neighborhood, engaged in their favorite electronics, and ignoring the shelves full of books in their rooms and at the library.
Every once in a while, however, they open up a wonderful book that is too good to set down and must be read, despite the pleading of the other kids and the beckoning of the shiny gadgets. I hope you (and your children) experience that moment when you pick up The Bravest Squirrel series and begin reading.
The Bravest Squirrel in the Forest: Everyone thinks Max’s sister is braver than he is, and he’s sick of it. He’s determined to prove he is the bravest squirrel ever. He devises a plan for the humans to trap him, so he can rescue his Uncle Louie. But things don’t go according to plan. First, he is forgotten in the cage. Then he is dumped out of a truck and abandoned in the forest with a hungry coyote hot on his trail. Max has to give up being brave and beg others to help him. When he has the chance to save Uncle Louie or risk his life to save a friend, Max discovers just how brave he really is.
