Get ready for the first day of school in this fourth book in the popular series featuring photographs of wild squirrels!
Mr. Peanuts' teacher friend Rosie needs help preparing for the first day of school! The two squirrels go shopping for school supplies, set up the library and music corners, bring all the sports equipment out to the blacktop, and decorate the classroom. Mr. Peanuts even practices driving the school bus! But it's not easy to be a teacher getting ready for a whole classroom of new faces. Will Mr. Peanuts and Rosie be able to pull together the room before the end of summer?
Nancy Rose brings this back-to-school story to life with her adorable photographs of real wild squirrels in handcrafted, homemade miniature settings.
Rose, whose staged squirrel photographs first gained popularity through social media, offers her fourth outing to feature furry backyard visitors. Mr. Peanuts, a school bus driver, and Rosie, a teacher, are preparing for the school year. In Rosie's classroom, the two unpack books, hang a welcome banner, post classroom rules, and set up the art corner. The story's allure lies in the squirrels' seemingly natural presence within the carefully constructed miniature scenes an effect achieved, an appended note explains, "by hiding peanuts in and around the props." Ages 4 8.
