"Ten Little Squirrels" brainstorm a way to evade their natural foe until one of them sneezes. No need to get squirrely--practicing classic rhythm and rhyme while teaching children to count has never been more fun! "Ten Little Squirrels" by "New York Times" bestselling authors Bill Martin Jr and Michael Samson follows the "tail" of these furry friends as they determine what to do when a dog approaches their tree. Readers can enjoy the charming illustrations, count each of the colorful squirrels, and go nuts rereading to their hearts' content.
