My father, who is now 80 years of age has always made various contraptions over the years. This story is about a squirrel feeding table that he had put together that was actually crow and magpie-proof.,
HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Well I am enjoying these little books just as much as my grandson. Policeman Pete calls on Farmer Bill and his two Children Sarah and Adam where they show him a feeding table their cousin has put up. This one isn’t for the birds but for a Squirrel.
This was a lovely book that encourages children to enjoy nature around them in safety. These stories open up so many topics to talk about, from why the squirrel stores the nuts in his mouth, to how he does it. My grandson was soon retelling the story through the lovely colourful pictures.
I even told him of when I lived on a farm and the squirrels would come along and unhook the bags of nuts I put out and run away across the field with them all in one go!
This is a delightful series.
I wish to thank Rachel Gilbey and Authoright for the AVC of this book which I have chosen to review
Today’s Home Safety Tip
4 Policeman Pete says that it is always good to tidy away your toys. This is so that no-one will fall over them and hurt themselves, especially near the stairs as that would be a nasty fall.
