"See that squirrel
in our tree?
I think he'd rather
live with me."
We love watching the squirrels climb and scamper all around, in the trees and on the ground. There is one squirrel we love watching in particular. He climbs up the poles of our bird feeders, just at the edge of our patio, every day. He jumps from one feeder to the other, and he sometimes hangs upside down for a little while. He cracks us up! It seems he will do just about anything to get something to eat. That is what the book, Nuts to You! by Lois Ehlert is all about. We can definitely appreciate this story. The squirrel will stop at nothing to get those peanuts.
After reading Nuts to You!, we baked peanut butter kiss cookies. Before we take our first bite, we shout out "Nuts to You!" And of course, we set out some peanuts for our favorite squirrel. When we see him begin to eat those nuts, we shout "Nuts to You!"
