Most squirrels spend their winter days hiding acorns in the snow. Not Mr. Peanuts. He loves Christmas and he's very excited when Cousin Squirrel invites him to spend Christmas at his place. After a busy day building snowmen, sledding, snowshoeing, and roasting chestnuts, Mr. Peanuts and Cousin Squirrel settle in to wait for Santa ... Christmas is so much better when you have a friend to spend it with.
THE PERFECT CHRISTMAS GIFT!

"The story is delightfully written, emphasizing the theme that having a friend makes everything more fun. The illustrations, however, steal the show ... It should prove to be a very popular addition to an elementary school library collection and is highly recommended for young readers." --Resource Links
"Rose's photos of squirrels doing human things are pretty hilarious, and she's created a fun narrative from them all. But it's most impressive when you look in the back of the book and learn how Rose set up these photos in her own backyard (mostly by hiding nuts in her set-pieces)." --Pickle Me This
"The book is beautifully illustrated with actual photos. Each page offers so much to see ... Looking over and over again at the pages is a must." --Children's Literature
