Vocabulary building has never been so adorable and fun! Squirrel Superhighway by Anna C. Morrison is a wonderful new addition to her other titles for pre-readers and early readers. Repetitive words and repeated sounds are blended together in this charming story about Duke, a dog who wishes to be a squirrel. As Duke watches the squirrel superhighway working above him, he wonders how he can best help the squirrels gather their nuts.
In addition to a wonderful story, the beautiful artwork by Vanda Lavar will keep readers eagerly turning the pages to see what antics these animals are up to next. I loved the sweet ending and the closing illustration.
Morrison has certainly found her niche. I look forward to reading more of her work.

I received a copy of this book from the author through Pump Up Your Book. This review contains my honest opinions, which I have not been compensated for in any way.
I’m having fun with STORYSTORM. Remember that you can register through January 7 if you wish to join us. We are in the fourth day of this event where writers endeavor to create 30 story ideas in 30 days. Daily posts at founder Tara Lazar’s blog provide tons of inspiration and they are giving away prizes at the end.
Idea #4: Two of my last four books (Little Shepherd and Amos Faces His Bully (under contract)) place fictional characters in Biblical settings. I would like to write a story about a young Samaritan girl witnessing Jesus as he speaks with the woman at the well. Not sure on the details yet, but perhaps this conversation changes the girl’s perception of herself. Samaritans being looked down on by the Jews, maybe this brings about a change in the way this girl behaves toward a Jewish girl and that changes how the Jewish girl acts toward her.
