Twitch the Squirrel and the Forbidden Bridge is a story about a bold, confident squirrel named Twitch who is something of a daredevil . . . and he doesn't mind when his friends cheer him on! When his parents forbid him to cross an old, broken rope bridge across a deep, dark ravine, he doesn't understand why. He can do anything! And there's a tree full of nuts just across the bridge! When Twitch decides to go get those acorns anyway, catastrophe strikes and Twitch learns the importance of respecting his parents' rules.
The picture book Twitch the Squirrel and the Forbidden Bridge by Don M. Winn can be used to illustrate for children that it’s important to respect rules; that when parents make rules, often it’s because they love their children and want to keep them safe; and that children can follow their parents’ rules and still be brave and daring and adventurous.
