reader Ë Twitch the Squirrel ´ Vivian Vande Velde

And mayhem erupts the smallest of the humans takes the blame for causing trouble No one but Twitch the suirrel notices when the boy runs out into the snow Or when he trips and hurts his ankleCan the dog and suirrel put aside their differences and figure out how to let the humans know their littlest one needs help And is there of that party food to celebrate with afterWith short funny chapters and Suirrel is sure his life is just perfect—better than the dog’s and definitely better than the people who live in the house by his tree But on a cold snowy day he decides to venture inside The ensuing chaos is hilariousMy son chortled at this one and even I laughed aloud Because the book is written from Suirrel's point of view readers get to enjoy not just the slapstick humor of the chase but the ironic humor that comes from contrasting suirrel's perspective on the situation with what the obvious human perspective is And there is a sweet little lesson in humility and kindness to boot With relatively easy text and short chapters this is a perfect book for practicing oral reading approx 2nd 4th grade
