Evie sets out to the forest to catch a squirrel. She soon becomes frustrated and impatient, so a duck explains how flapping her wings – duckflap – calms her down. Evie tries it, and soon happily goes off exploring again.
In a series of interactions with the various forest animals, Evie learns about herself and how to better handle life. Living in the moment, going with the flow, and listening to one’s own inner wisdom are all explored.
The unique and colorful illustrations in Squircle include hand-embroidery from elementary school students. Fabric pieced together form murals used as the artwork for scenery. Squircle was recently voted a Mom’s Choice Gold Award Winner in the Inspiration/Motivational category. This beautiful book has a great message and would make a nice addition to any child’s library.
