Frisky Brisky Hippity Hop

(2012)

With their bushy tails and acrobatic antics, squirrels are great fun to watch.  They’ve also been the subject of stories and poems for children over the years.  Back in 1871, Alexina B.White paid sweet tribute to those frisky, funny critters in her collection of poetry, Little Folk Songs.  White’s ode to squirrels has been given new, vibrant life for new readers with adaptation and additional verses provided by Susan Lurie, perfectly matched with beautiful, naturalistic photographs by Murray Head.  It’s been one of my new favorites for fall storytime, but can be enjoyed by young animal lovers any time of year.

Recommended for ages 3-6.
