The Right Place
A lonely squirrel goes searching for a new home, only to discover that the best place is one where the whole community can live together. Joining Barefoot’s acclaimed collection of social-emotional titles, this tale offers the perfect opportunity to start conversations about coping with loneliness, the importance of community, and what makes a place feel like home. Beautiful illustrations by award-winning Italian artist Simona Mulazzani bring Squirrel’s journey to life.
