Dead Squirrel

I just read a book about a dead squirrel that is in full regamortis for the entire picturebook. That right, a picturebook- so the book featured a beautifully illustrated dead squirrel. On the last page (after they’ve buried the seemingly dead squirrel), there is a squirrel running around on a tree.  I can’t begin to express how many things I find disturbing about this book.

  1. Post the name of the book out. It is worth the laugh to go and read it at at book store. What in the world were they thinking? Better ways to teach kids about the cycle of life or death of a pet.

  2. Yes, I think it’s worth a look over! I have to find it…I’m working on a bigger piece about books that make we wonder!
