Fox and Squirrel both have something to offer when they need to care for a little one.
When a baby bat drops in from out of the sky, Fox is immediately taken with the soft, sweet creature and rushes to take care of it. Squirrel is less sure this is a welcome intrusion. The new squeaky stranger can't keep up with all their favourite activities and doesn't seem to realize how fun Squirrel can be. Can Fox and Squirrel come together to figure out what Squeak needs?
In this new installment in the Fox and Squirrel series, award-winning author Ruth Ohi delivers a heartwarming tale, with an affirming message for anyone who has felt frustrated accommodating someone with different needs. And a lovely reminder about the good feeling that comes with helping out.
