  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2010 October #2
    Most holiday books are centered around Halloween, Thanksgiving, or Christmas, but here's one that takes kids into the New Year. Squirrel doesn't know what a resolution is—happily, Bear the librarian explains it quite well, both to her and to the book's audience. Squirrel then visits her forest friends to see what resolutions they have planned and hopes she'll be able to think of one for herself. Skunk, Turtle, and Mole all have ideas, but they can't seem to get started until Squirrel gives them a push. She comes away disappointed that nothing's come to her, but when she meets her friends later at the diner, they point out that her involvement has led to a resolution "to help someone every day." The story line gets a little muddy as the resolutions become more interrelated, but the happy pictures and the (possibly new) knowledge that a resolution is an important, attainable goal carry the day. Perfect for those tired of pumpkins and Santa. Copyright 2010 Booklist Reviews.
