There are so many reasons to love this book! Besides the entertaining story and hilarious illustrations, the reader sees Mr. Fookwire and the squirrels changes throughout the book. I have had students write about their changes in their journals or even respond to it on blog posts.
It's also always interesting and entertaining to ask my students to debate on whether Mr. Fookwire should share the seed or not.
Lastly, this is a great STEM read! Both Mr. Fookwire and the squirrels have to be crafty and use their resources to stop the "enemy"! Use this book to inspire your students to defend their own seed. Or use it as an engage piece for a force and motion lesson! Either way. I love this book!
