The Busy Little Squirrel

Busy Little Squirrel

The Busy Little Squirrel by Nancy Tafuri is a nice story to introduce the season of fall. It’s a simple story that I’ve made into a flannel board. I’ve also recently acquired a cardinal finger puppet so I can tell this story using puppets!

Each animal (mouse, bird, frog, cat, dog, and owl) asks squirrel to do something with them. Activities include munch on a pumpkin, rest on a branch, hop on the rocks, lie in the sun, run through the field, and admire the moon. Squirrel cannot do any of these fun things because he is too busy getting ready for winter and collecting goodies to keep him fed. Here’s a short video of me presenting the story with my very cool Puppet Bin:
