My favorite Children’s Books starting with the letter O

A title:

One more Acorn

written by Don Freeman and RoyFreeman

illustrated by Don Freeman

A cute squirrel story with a story of its own. This story was started in Wahington D.C. in 1964. It was left unfinished and eventually given an ending by the author’s son Roy. The illustrator used Don Freeman’s style to finish the book. The fall colors blend well with the squirrel. Includes popular landmarks from Washington D.C.
