Squirrel on Museum Field Trip Causes Chaos

Way To Go Vivian! Squirrel on Museum Field Trip Causes Chaos

Award-winning children’s author Vivian Vande Velde released a new book this Spring titled Squirrel in the Museum. This delightful story of a stowaway squirrel, Twitch, who hitches a ride on a school bus filled with boys and girls. The sneaky squirrel on the museum field trip causes chaos among the students, teachers, and other museum patrons. I love that the reader knows right away how “very highly educated” Twitch is, and he shares many lessons about life and science on his journey.
