A fun tale about the importance of learning how to share and respecting other people and their things
The Very Special Thing is a brilliantly funny tale about what can happen when we forget to think of others and get carried away with our hobbies. Squirrel loves to collect things around the forest. She really has the eye for it! But when she starts to take the other animals’ possessions, the mood turns sour and the others aren’t very happy. As Squirrel’s collection grows and grows, her very favorite thing, her special acorn, is in danger of getting lost in all the mess. Will the other animals be able to help?
