Students can relate to this because sometimes there are students who cannot get along, from watching the two squirrels. The students begin to realize how disruptive this is, and they begin to take into consideration how their teacher may feel when they do it.

Lovely book about the importance of sharing. The illustrations are beautiful and humorous.The authors prose is easy to read - the rhythm and rhyme flows easily. The book is interactive where you turn it sideways as the squirrels fight over the acorn. The ending is about coming together and sharing a meal with all the creatures they encountered while chasing and fighting over the acorn. ( )

This is the story of two squirrels -- Cyril who partied all year and now realizes too late that he hasn't stored up any food for the winter; and Bruce who has been hoarding enough food for 10 squirrels but thinks he needs more somehow. The two collide when they both try to get the last pinecone of the season, and adventure ensures.

This is a humorous book to tackle the idea of sharing and being a good friend. The over-the-top adventures of the squirrels is a nice relief from the dozens and dozens of stories about a child crying because their sibling or friend won't share a toy with them.

The illustrations are lively, have lots of fun details, and really complement the text nicely to help tell the story.

That all being said, this book was talked up a lot by a colleague so I found it a bit of a letdown after having such high expectations for it. ( )
