"This memorable story will help toddlers (and caregivers) connect behavior to the language of sharing." —Kirkus Reviews

Praise For Nuts!

Vibrant, mixed-media animals and hints of landscaping are easy to follow against cream-colored pages. There are ladybugs and bees to count, a snail's progress to track, and a minimal text in a large font; these elements, combined with the theme, make this a title that will serve young children well, visually and conceptually...This memorable story will help toddlers (and caregivers) connect behavior to the language of sharing.
—Kirkus Reviews

Ismail’s exuberant, wash-like mixed-media illustrations are a perfect match for this high-energy tale about two squirrels who discover that “our” can be just as rewarding as “my.”
—Publishers Weekly

Featuring an engaging animal cast, this amiable, read-aloud-friendly picture book tackles a subject, including concepts of possessiveness and the mutual rewards of generosity, in an approach that will likely resonate with the younger set.
