This is a gentle book of a little girl taking a walk with her grandad in the woods and wanting to take a squirrel home, and grandad trying to disuade her. The illustrations are lovely. Some pages are just pictures, with lots to see. This book is great to read to a child, and for a child who cannot yet read to be able to tell the story back from the pictures.
It gives a message of conservation, but doesn't ram it down your throat.
It is very good value for money.

I was recommend this by my daughter, as our youngest grandson had borrowed it from the library and it had really made them laugh. It's about the struggle of a grandad to keep up with his little grandaughter 'Jess' during a walk in the Wild Woods. As my son's daughter is Jessica and she loves going for walks with her Grandad it was a must for her. Both she and her younger brother - love looking at the pages and having it read to them. The children in question are aged 5,4 and 2 - I wouldn't really recommend it for older children as the reading content is limited. However, for a lovely 'feelgood' read with little ones it's great.
