Picture Book Review: Acorns Everywhere! by Kevin Sherry


His giant squid stole
our hearts. His orange squirrel will steal our…acorns?! Bonk! When an
acorn hits him on the head, a chubby squirrel takes stock. And what does
he see? ACORNS EVERYWHERE! With a jolt of hilarious manic energy, he
gets to work – Gather! Dig! Bury! Readers will know, even if the squirrel
doesn’t, that “gather” does not mean prying acorns from the mouth of a
scandalized mouse, the beak of an unsuspecting bird, or . . . well,
you’ll see. Will this squirrel get what’s coming to him or will he get
something even better?


Acorns Everywhere is an absolutely hilarious book about a squirrel frantically collecting acorns from every source he can find…including the paws and beaks of other animals.

He spends so much time gathering, digging, and burying, that when he gets hungry, he isn’t quite sure where he put them all.  So he has to settle for something else instead. 

My only concern with this book was the way the squirrel grabbed acorns from other animals.  But it did give me a good opportunity to talk with my kids about sharing and making sure we don’t grab things from other people because it makes them angry or sad.
