A little squirrel tries to guess the reason why his father loves him. (goodreads summary)
Little Red Squirrel is out playing with his daddy and wants to know all the reasons why he loves him. Is it because he is so fast or brave? Maybe it is because of his top secret berry stash. Whatever the reason, Little Red Squirrel is determined to find out and shows off his many abilities asking if this is why he loves him. Just in time for Father's Day, this cute and sweet book will make a nice bedtime story. The illustrations are warm and whimsical carrying heart warming expressions on every page. The words were gentle and reassuring and I could hear Daddy Red Squirrel just like a parent speaking to a young child. Reading the story did remind me a lot of "Guess How Much I Love You". It has the same concept, but then again you can never tell your child enough how much you love them! I think this is a "just right book" for ages 3-6.~
