Scooter and Friends Take A Vacation by Nancy Strom is a super cute and quirky story about four lovable and whimsical animal friends that are ready to go on a fun adventure and take on whatever comes their way! Scooter, a mischievous, furry red fox and her friend Murphy, a cool hedgehog, decide that a great and enjoyable vacation trip is in order for them and their friends. Bandit, a young raccoon and the always singing Betsy, a gnawing beaver, are the other friends to join them on their trek for adventure. After a friendly meeting with some lovely homemade treats, the animals decide to take a trip past the river to see what they can find. The next day they pack their backpacks with all their needs and excitedly head out together. They run into a toad that gives them advice on which way is the safest to go.

The illustrations are just simply beautiful and colorful pulling children further into the delightful plotline and painting an appealing picture for all to imagine.
