SQUIRREL SUPERHIGHWAY: IT’S GOOD TO BE A DOG

Squirrel Superhighway features a dog on a self-discovery mission who is surrounded by many graceful squirrels. This is a vocabulary booster in a series of feel-good stories for children of all ages and those who read with and to them. The story includes squirrels, more squirrels, even more squirrels, and a dog who wants to be a squirrel!

My Take:
This book is a short cute tale of a dog who loves to watch squirrels. It looks like they are having so much fun in the trees above bouncing back and forth collecting acorns that he wants to be a squirrel too. He tries his best, but isn't able to "fly" like them, so to fit in, he tries collecting a pile of acorns on the ground. All his barking disturbs the neighbors and his owner finally comes to get him. In the end... He decides it really is good to be a dog. 

I am sure kids, especially younger ones, will enjoy this book. I am sure they will be able to relate. It is well written and very colorfully illustrated with beautiful pictures and lots of detail. This story reminds me of how as a kid we dream of being something else... a super hero who can fly, an animal, or something other than what we are. In the end, what God created us to be, is always the best.

I was blessed with a free e-copy of this book courtesy of Pump Up Your Book and the Author. I was not required to review this book in a positive way and all opinions are my own.
