Review:

Some homeowners may find squirrels pesky, but children will delight in the antics of Squirrels Leap, Squirrels Sleep illustrated by Steve Jenkins. Squirrels perch in trees, tumble in play, and stand to peer around. The illustrations also show squirrels grooming, scampering up trees, and burying acorns. The rhyming text, written by April Pulley Sayre, flows smoothly. The color palette is comprised of blues, grays, greens, and browns. On some pages, strips of torn green paper effectively illustrate the tree line. The papercut animals are charming. Readers—and some homeowners—just may see squirrels in a whole new light.
