Review: When squirrels get Popsicle sticks and toothpicks, they become Squirrels on Skis. In this swirling whirling tale about squirrels racing on skis, author J. Hamilton Ray has written a kid friendly book based on a famous author, Dr. Seuss. A rhyming book as well, as can be swell little kids are sure to enjoy.

In this adventurous tale, people in the town see that there were squirrels on skis. First there is one, then 2, then 100. No one knows where the squirrels have found their skis, but it is up to Sally Sue Breeze to figure out this mystery. The mayor is about to send Stanley Powers to take the squirrels away, and Sally Sue Breeze does not want this to happen. Does Sally solve the mystery? You are going to have to read Squirrels on Skis by J.Hamilton Ray to find out.

The book Squirrel on Skis is great to teach little kids about going for what they believe in and thinking in their own way. I think that the author describes the setting very well. I also like that the author, J.Hamilton Ray was influenced by Dr.Seuss and is bringing books like that back. I love the rhyming, and little kids will love it too. This book is fun, interesting and teaches kids a lesson. Who wouldn't want this book? Sally Sue Breeze is a very well-rounded character. She sticks to one thing and doesn't give up on saving the squirrels - even though she has no clue at the beginning. This book will teach kids in a fun way. Squirrels on Skis is a fun rhyming book with easy words for kid to read, so what are to waiting for? Get Squirrels on Skis by J.Hamilton Ray.
