Features for Teachers: Rowan the Red Squirrel

Here at Kelpies HQ, we love spotting Scottish wildlife. One of our favourite creatures is the red squirrel. Lynne Rickards‘ latest picture book – Rowan the Red Squirrel – features a family of little red squirrels, beautifully illustrated by Jon Mitchell.

Rowan the Red Squirrel

Rowan the little red squirrel and his sister Hazel are leaving their drey on their own for the very first time. Hazel is eager to explore and, before they know it, they set off on an exciting adventure. But Rowan is worried – about the strange noises in the forest around them and their mother’s warning to look out for the fox!
