Valentine’s earth-hued illustrations show a fuzzy mouse and chipmunk that are more alike than they are different, even if they may not realize it. Nut is truly magnificent, a shiny acorn with a firmly attached cap. Listeners will giggle along with the characters’ antics as they get caught up in the excitement of a new (and shiny) friend.
Verdict: A great read-aloud, this story is sure to make your storytime listeners giggle and maybe even think twice about sharing a new toy (or friend). A fun addition to your storytime repertoire.
