Author Kay Groff-Chilcote invites young readers to join a couple of squirrels searching for a new place to raise their family in Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel’s New Home. In this Xlibris release, delightful illustrations give life to Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel’s ongoing search for a place they could call their own.

The story begins when Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel, who are expecting children, realize the importance of finding a safe place to raise their young. Finding a new home, however, is not that easy. Some trees are too tall, caves are dark and damp, while some holes in the ground are like caves. So they scurried from one place to another, hoping that they find a new home soon.

Finally, after a long and tiring search, they found the perfect place. The timing is perfect for as soon as Mr. and Mrs. Squirrel have settled in, the baby squirrels came. They were so happy to have found a house in time. However, their happiness is cut short as new problems arise. It seems that their new house can’t be their permanent home after all. What will they do now? The rest of their adventure awaits in this amusing book.
