This year, KidsPost was drawn into the world of Squirrel Week, the invention of Washington Post columnist John Kelly. For a week in April, he writes about the bushy-tailed mammal that can be found just about anywhere. KidsPost featured a story about how squirrels and oak trees need each other. We also asked readers to send us their squirrel drawings, paintings and etchings. We received more than 100 — all adorable. Here are some of our favorites.
