As a big fan of “Criss Cross,” I was excited to read this book by Lynne Rae Perkins. “Nuts to You” is a cute story about an adventure that begins when one squirrel named Jed was snatched up by a hawk. Two of his squirrel friends witness this catastophe, but one is lucky enough to see him dropped from the talons of the mighty hawk a ways in the distance. Together, the two friends take off on a journey to locate and bring home their dear friend Jed. However, the squirrels all encounter a great ruckus, which we can plainly see is the trimming of the trees along the power lines (although to squirrels seems like the world might be ending!). I think this book would make a great classroom read aloud for kids of many ages.
