The Sneaky, Snacky Squirrel and the Golden Acorn
12pp., board book., RRP $A21.99
The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel is looking for something extra special today: the Golden Acorn. Is it in the tree? How about at the beach? Could Frankie have Golden Acorns on his food truck menu? Maybe Sophie the otter has seen it in the sea? Or Hoppy Floppy might find it in the meadow? Wait—here comes a gust of wind, blowing a pile of leaves . . .
Inspired by the popular game celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2021, and featuring the characters from other books in the series, this book offers lots of flaps to explore and a wheel to turn ensuring our youngest readers are actively engaged rather than passively watching. Bright and sturdy, the Sneaky Snacky Squirrel’s second adventure will keep readers occupied as it helps strengthen colour recognition and classification skills while also introducing animals not ordinarily seen in Australia but which feature widely in children’s literature.
One for those with young readers craving something new.
