Picture Book Review: The Right Place

4 out of 5 stars

When Squirrel wakes up from his winter hibernation, he has a strong feeling that his hole in a tree is no longer “the right place”. He asks all the forest animals what they think the “right place” is. The bird says a nest. The turtle just says “Inside” and goes into her shell. The mole says underground is the best place. Squirrel needs to find a way to bring all his forest friends together, because the “right place” is when they are all together.

I liked this cute book, and the journey that Squirrel takes to discover a place that feels comfortable for him and his friends. It’s a really lovely story with a good message. I like the repetition as Squirrel asks various animals the same question. Repetition is so great for young readers!

The illustrations are sweet and I like the simple designs. The colors are calming and make me feel like I’m in a cool green forest. There are some nice details in the background that make the artwork really special.
