Caldecott Honor winner David Ezra Stein’s lively tale is a fantastic read-aloud, and feisty Mama Squirrel will have fierce mamas everywhere applauding!

Ol’ Mama Squirrel has raised lots of babies, and she knows just how to protect them. Whenever trouble comes nosing around, she springs into action with a determined “Chook, chook, chook!” and scares trouble away. Her bravery is put to the test, however, when a really big threat wanders into town and onto her tree. But no matter what, Mama’s not about to back down!

Review: Ol' Mama Squirrel

User Review  - Sandy - Goodreads

Written by the author of Interrupting Chicken, one of my favorite chickens books. I really liked Interrupting Chicken and this one is not as good as that but it shows kids how much a mama will fight to keep her babies safe. A cute story and fun pictures. Read full review
