The Adventure


What happens when a squirrel is taken away by a hawk and his friend goes to look for him? An adventure like no other! After Jed has been taken away, his friend TsTs goes on a mission to find him since dropping from the hawk's mouth.

Jed's adventures allow him to meet new squirrels in the forest who have an accent he has never heard. They each teach each other new ways to survive and enjoy the forest. But the worst part that they all see are the men who are cutting down the trees. As Jed's friends find him, they are separated once again.

Classroom Application

Through friendship and adventure, the story takes on a fantasical journey through the woods that children will enjoy! This book is perfect for a read aloud since it includes some hard to pronounce words and accents. It also contains a great deal of footnotes to help with different concepts and thoughts of the author, which will aid in teaching new concepts to students.
